USDA helping out local food movement ! Big time. “On Friday, as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food effort, USDA Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan announced the largest allotment of grants for value-added producers in recent history: nearly 300 grants across 44 states and Puerto Rico — to the tune of $44 million,” Grist wrote a few days ago. “Merrigan announced the grants at The Many Faces of Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food, a one-day conference hosted at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The event focused on ‘successful models, resources, strategies and opportunities for supporting, cultivating and growing local/regional food systems in the Midwest.’”
