Did you know…
The PA Farm to School Grant is one of the grant programs made possible by the Pennsylvania Farm Bill, the only such bill in the country, was enacted by the PA state legislature back in 2019. The bill helps to grow opportunities and resources, remove barriers to entry, and inspire future generations of leaders within agriculture. Since the bill was enacted, positive adjustments have been made to make it more accessible and equitable, and the PFSN in partnership with the Department of Agriculture will continue to advocate for additional adjustments in the coming years!
