New Initiative Aims to Increase Produce for Iowa Food Banks
This initiative aims to improve the food environment for Iowans with low income, develop a strategic plan for planting food bank donations in gardens across Iowa, and increase the amount of food donated to food banks by Iowa Master Gardeners. Any active Master Gardener wishing to apply for a mini grant to support a food security project is required to register and take part in the webinar series. Mini grant applications for up to $1000 are due on March 1, 2016. Read the press release here. Learn about the mini grants here.
