The Youth Food Project was made possible by a $62,300 grant we received from the State Farm Advisory Board! Thanks to the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board for their support in writing the grant, and to our great local agents Sue Hofmann and Lou Santoro.
On September 16th, LAMS teacher Stephanie Krantz was presented with the grant money by State Farm Public Affairs Specialist Tamara Pachl on school grounds. Rain didn’t stop the celebration–we took it as a good sign for the start of a garden!
Check out two news clips about the grant presentation.
