The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) is offering $4 million in Farm to School Purchasing Grants in the 2023-2025 biennium to increase the purchase, use, and promotion of foods that are grown, raised, caught, or foraged in Washington by child nutrition programs, including schools, childcare, and early learning services. Grants ranging from $1,000 to $800,000 can be used for food that is grown, raised, caught, or foraged in Washington state as well as non-food costs that support the development and sustainability of farm to school efforts to purchase and promote foods grown and raised in Washington State, such as equipment, materials and supplies, staff time, transportation, and travel costs associated with farm to school training.
