Farm to ECE Implementation Grant

FIG: Farm to ECE Implementation Grants

ASAP, on behalf of the North Carolina Farm to Preschool Network was awarded funding in the Fall of 2020 from the Association of State Public Health Nutritionists (ASPHN). With this funding, the Network is awarding 40 Farm to Early Care and Education (ECE) Implementation Grants (FIG) to North Carolina childcare centers and family childcare homes who are interested in starting or enhancing their daily routines with Farm to Preschool programming. Childcare centers and homes selected for the FIG will receive a mini-grant, Growing Minds Farm to Preschool Toolkit, literacy box, and virtual training opportunities. They will also be matched with a mentor organization that will provide guidance to help them implement farm to preschool activities.
