Session 2: Farm to School Opportunities for Local Producers
Ten million dollars are allocated annually for USDA farm to school grants. Maine Farm and Sea is helping producers and school districts access these funds and implement farm to school programs throughout Maine. Join us to learn more about how local food is purchased to feed kids in schools and learn about the first Maine Farm to School Institute.
