A Partnership Grant of $1,000,000 over five years to support the capital campaign for the Center for Food Education which will be located at the current downtown Birmingham farm location. The multi-use venues of the Center will allow JVTF to conduct field trips and daily Good School Food instruction simultaneously and expand its culinary programming. The facility will become a training site and a hub for replicating and selling Good School Food plans and curriculum. This grant will also allow Jones Valley Teaching Farm to take advantage of New Market Tax Credit opportunities recently presented to the organization as well as inspire and set the pace for other lead donors to invest in JVTF’s mission.
