AGRI Farm to School Grants

AGRI Farm to School Grants support Minnesota school districts that want to process and serve Minnesota agricultural products. Grants are intended to:

  • Help create plans that identify specific equipment, tools, training, or policies that school districts need
  • Help schools buy equipment they need to buy, prepare, and serve more Minnesota grown and raised food

Eligible Projects 

There are two kinds of AGRI Farm to School Grants:

  1. Planning Grants help early care and education organizations create plans that identify specific equipment, tools, training, or policies needed to encourage the purchase, preparation, and serving Minnesota grown and raised food.
  2. Equipment Purchase and Physical Improvement Grants help early care and education organizations purchase equipment and update relevant infrastructure to allow for the increase purchase, preparation, and serving of Minnesota grown and raised food.

Amounts Available

Planning Grants provide up to 75 percent of the total project costs. Awards can range from $1,000 to $30,000. Recipients must cover the remaining 25 percent of the project as a cash match.

Equipment Purchase and Physical Improvement Grants cover up to 50 percent of the total project costs. Awards can range from $1,000 to $50,000. Recipients must cover the remaining 50 percent as a cash match.
