MIFMA is inviting Michigan market managers to apply for funding to support a food safety themed program of their choice for the 2024 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.
Up to twenty markets will be chosen and will receive up to $600 to execute the program of their choice and a $500 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 22, 2024 at 9 AM. Markets must be current MIFMA members in good standing to be selected.
Please review the full Request for Proposals here, and complete the application below!
If you have questions, please contact the MIFMA team at email@example.com 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: The application period has closed.
