Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Center for Rural Affairs

Lyons, Neb.



The center champions strong rural communities that support social, economic and environmental equity while engaging residents in decisions affecting their quality of life and future, and sponsors the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, an alliance of 80 grassroots farm, food and conservation groups. This grant helps the coalition work through the federal Farm to School grant program to ensure that school cafeterias serve nutritious, fresh food to low-income children.
