Host Sites Needed for AmeriCorps Farm to School Program

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is now accepting requests for partnership (RFP) for new AmeriCorps Farm to School partner sites across Wisconsin for the 2015-2016 grant year. Schools and communities interested in becoming host sites must file their intent to apply by April 3. Complete applications are due to DATCP by May 8.

Program staff anticipates funding for at least two new host sites. Approved host sites will receive resources to support at least one half-time community outreach member and one half-time nutrition educator. Awards will be announced in mid-June, and programming is expected to start in August, contingent on funding. For more information, contact Dominique Bradley at [email protected] or call 608.224.5017.
