Local Food For Schools Banner

The Local Food For Schools Incentive Program (LFSIP) provides money to increase schools’ purchases of local and regional foods from socially disadvantaged farmers, producers, and small businesses. We can answer questions about utilizing micro-purchase threshold, geographic preference, access to information on local farms, and facilitate relationship development.
