USDA awards most ever Farm to School Grants

The Trump Administration has granted the largest number of Farm to School Grants to date.

USDA is funding $12.1 million for 159 projects to help schools source fresh, local foods over the next school year.  Grants range between $20,000 and $100,000 and support projects in 46 states.

For the first time, state agencies were able to use local foods in child nutrition programs, not just school meal programs.
