Partnerships for Local Agriculture & Nutrition Transformation in Schools (PLANTS)
Applications are due January 22, 2024.
Tower Gardens make a great add-on to a school seeking funding for grants like this one.
The USDA is seeking proposals for projects led by groups of local partners with systemic and equity-driven approaches to transforming school food supply chains. Projects should seek to build and strengthen relationships among community-based food system stakeholders and School Food Authorities (SFAs) as well as expand scratch cooking in schools in order to build more nourishing school meal programs.
This program is funded by the USDA Food & Nutrition Service Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative and is administered by Chef Ann Foundation in partnership with Kitchen Sync Strategies Collaborative, Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition, and National Farm to School Network. USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
Tower Gardens can be placed in school cafeterias and set up in shipping containers on school parking lots, growing food for your school scratch kitchen.
