USDA Announces Farm to School Grant Awards

USDA announced more than $10 million in Farm to School Grants to 123 projects across the country, to serve more than 3 million children at more than 5,000 schools in 44 states and the District of Columbia. USDA is also empowering states with $60 million in non-competitive grants to develop stronger and sustainable Farm to School programs over the next four years. These non-competitive grants will allow states to better assist program operators in purchasing and using more local foods in meals for kids between Fiscal Years 2023-2026. The resources will also expand agricultural education for children.
