DNR now accepting grant applications for Farm to School program

The Alaska Department of Natural Resources is now accepting applications for its annual Farm to School mini-grants from April 2-18.

Mini-grants are available for school-based projects that connect students, teachers and school food service staff with products grown and produced in Alaska. Available funding is on a per project basis between $250 and $1,000. If additional funding becomes available, applicants must indicate whether the project could be expanded.

The goal of the Farm to School program is to encourage healthy eating and boost local agriculture sales by bringing Alaska Grown vegetables, fruit and other products into local school.

Applications can be dropped off in person, sent by email to taylor.berberich@alaska.gov or mailed to the Division of Agriculture at 1800 Glenn Highway, Ste 12, Palmer, AK 99701 or faxed to 745-7242. All applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. on April 18.
