The C.S. Mott Group for Sustainable Food Systems (now CRFS) at Michigan State University with support from the WK Kellogg Foundation presented a webinar in December 2009, to discuss grants and resources available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for food projects in communities.
Objectives of the webinar included:
•Provide updates on selected USDA programs that promote local food systems and support healthy food access in communities
•Identify certain grant opportunities for community based and not-for-profit organizations: as direct applicants, or in partnership with educational institutions
•Focus on grant application process timeline and elements for success, e.g.: early preparation, relevant and timely information, requirements, technical assistance, strategic partnerships
