MIFMA is inviting Michigan market managers to apply for funding to support a food safety-themed program of their choice for the 2023 market season. These projects can range from an in-person cooking demonstration, food safety kitchen tool distribution event, educational videos to share online, and other farmers market-focused projects.
15-20 markets will be chosen and will receive up to $600 dollars to execute the program of their choice and a $300 stipend. MIFMA will actively support the selected markets throughout the duration of their projects. Accompanying these individual program resources will be a social media campaign focusing on consumer food safety at the farmers market. Markets selected will be required to share these posts on Facebook.
Applications are being accepted through the form below through January 31, 2023, and markets must be current MIFMA members in good standing to be selected. If you have questions, please contact the MIFMA team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 517-432-3381.
This project is made possible by a Food Safety Education Fund grant through the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD).
UPDATE 2/1/23: Applications are now closed for the 2023 market season.
