Each year, the South Carolina Farm to School Program awards schools with mini-grants to implement the four core components of Farm to School. In addition to grant funding, grantees receive technical assistance from program staff throughout the entire school year as well training opportunities that include a one-day workshop (Action Institute), Garden Workshop, and Culinary Training.
The South Carolina Farm to School Program does not currently have funding available.
Grant funding for schools is usually announced early Spring, but here is an example of the Request for Proposal for the 2016-17 grant announcement.
This page contains information relevant to current Farm to School grantees. For more information, please contact us!
Funds can only be used to implement the Farm to School project. Use of funds for any other purposes is prohibited. Grantees should refer to this handout before making purchases for their Farm to School project.
Grantees are required to fill out budget reports at the start of the school year, in January, and at the end of the school year. Grantees can download this document to send in their school budget.
