Grants Help Bring Ag Literacy to Minnesota Classrooms

The Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom (MAITC) Foundation has announced the recipients of its 2023 Agricultural Literacy Grants, which are designed to support agriculture and food systems education efforts from kindergarten to high school across the state. 

A total of 17 projects received grants of up to $500 each to help educators provide students the opportunity to experience agriculture in a cross-curricular manner. 

Topics that will be explored through this year’s projects include locally grown foods, agricultural careers, community gardens, and more. 

MAITC is a partnership between the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and the  MAITC Foundation that seeks to increase agricultural literacy through K-12 education.
