The Chef Ann Foundation will provide grant funding for their Partnerships for Local Agriculture & Nutrition Transformation in Schools (PLANTS) program. This program is designed to fund projects that bring together local community members and partners to improve, advance and sustain their local K-12 school food supply chain.

This program also hopes to expand scratch cooking in schools to allow schools to source ingredients such as produce, meat, and other ingredients from their local producers. These projects will help to ensure equity of nutritional scratch cooked meals in schools.

There are 5 objectives for this program.

  1. Build and strengthen relationships.
  2. Improve school food supply chain coordination.
  3. Increase awareness of and access to K-12 markets.
  4. Expand scratch cooking in K-12 schools.
  5. Create a sustainable approach.


To be eligible for this grant, your project must be in partnership with at least 3 (Max. of 5) local partners. At least one of the partners must be a School Food Authority. Also, the lead partner must have a history of building nutritious school food programs in the past or has created a local food system that serves K-12 schools.
