>Funding Opportunity: Farm Assistance Grants - Request for Applications

The Wallace Center at Winrock International is pleased to announce its newest effort to support the work of food hubs through the Farm Assistance Grants program. The intention of these grants is to provide assistance to food hubs in providing services to small and mid-sized farms and to help them become stronger supply partners.  We are able to offer this program as a result of the generous support from the Walmart Foundation. Applicants will select one of two options in the application process: a self-designed project (Attachment A) or enrollment in the National Good Food Network Farmer Food Safety Education Program (Attachment B).

The Wallace Center has released a request for applications for organizations interested in grant support as part of this new work. The application deadline is January 26, 2015.
