$100,00 Awarded to Farm to School Programs

The passage of Act 154 (H.969) allocated $100,000 in Coronavirus Relief Funds to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets (VAAFM) Farm to School Program to address the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. VAAFM awarded these funds to twenty-two schools and registered or licensed child care providers for equipment and supply purchases that were necessitated by the COVID-19 global health pandemic and helped to support farm to school program goals.
