CDFA seeks public comment for 2021 Farm to School Grant Program’s request for applications

The California Department of Food and Agriculture Office of Farm to Fork (CDFA-F2F) is now seeking public comments regarding the 2021 Farm to School Incubator Grant Program’s Request for Applications, or RFA.

The funding for this grant program was made available by the Budget Act of 2020, which includes a $10 million one-time General Fund allocation for the 2020-21 fiscal year and $1.5 million annually thereafter for CDFA to establish a Farm to School Incubator Grant Program and provide ongoing support for the California Farm to School Network, or CFSN.

CFSN is a "one-stop shop" that works to align farm to school efforts, share resources and bring together farmers, schools, distributors and practitioners.

The Farm to School Incubator Grant Program will award competitive grants to support innovative local and regional farm to school projects in nutrition education, sustainable food production and procurement, and high-quality student engagement through experiential learning.

Review the RFA for the grant program here.

Comments received will be considered before this Farm to School RFA is made final and when developing future Farm to School RFAs.
