The MSU Center for Regional Food Systems is pleased to offer another round of Michigan Local Food Council Network Seed Grants.  Existing and developing Michigan local food or food policy councils are eligible to apply for grants of up to $5,000, or $6,000 with matching funds.  These seed grants provide a source for existing councils to expand their capacity and newly-forming councils to accelerate their development. The grant program also aims to increase connection and opportunities for peer-to-peer learning among councils through participation in the Michigan Local Food Council Network.  For complete details, see the request for proposals at http://foodsystems.msu.edu/news/michigan-local-food-council-network-seed-grant-rfp.  Proposals are due by 5:00pm on Tuesday, June 13.  For more information or questions on the process, contact Liz Gensler: gensler@anr.msu.edu.
