Farm to School BC Survey

Farm to School BC would like to understand the school food environments across BC. In order to do so, we would like to encourage all schools in BC to fill out our survey.

Farm to School BC Start-up Grants

Established in 2007, Farm to School BC is a diverse and expanding provincial network that promotes, supports, and links Farm to School activity across the province. Farm to School programs bring healthy, local food into schools, and provide students with hands-on learning opportunities that foster food literacy, all while strengthening the local food system and enhancing school and community connectedness.

Farm to School BC is pleased to offer Start-up Grants for BC schools to plan and implement new Farm to School programs.

We welcome all BC K-12 schools to apply. Farm to School BC wishes to extend a special invitation to schools that serve more vulnerable students.

We have designed this grant opportunity to take place in two phases to acknowledge and honor the time it takes to plan and implement Farm to School programs for busy schools, teachers, parents and students. The first phase is a $500 grant to successful applicants to support program planning, followed by a $3500 grant for implementation.

There are three documents related to this grant:

  1. Invitation & Information Package
  2. Grant Application Form
  3. Program Planning Template

Grant Deadline December 19th, 2014

As you work through the application, please be sure to connect to the Farm to School BC network through social media and utilize the many resources available on our website. Also be sure to sign up to receive our seasonal newsletter (found in the social media section in the left side menu of our website).
