Please join us for an informational session focused on Hoophouses for Health, Farm to School and expanded opportunities for using local foods in early childcare programs in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Funding is available to support hoophouse construction costs for farmers and to provide incentives to food service directors and early childcare programs to purchase fresh, local products from participating farms. To learn more about how you can get involved, join us on
