The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) recently awarded a 75 hundred dollar ($7,500.00) grant to Farm to Fork Alcona.
Farm to Fork Alcona is a multi-phase initiative promoting the farm to table movement in Alcona in order to improve the economy and health of the community
The MEDC pledged to match online donations raised during a 30-day period in October. With over $7,500 brought in from local donors, and the MEDC grant, Farm to Fork Alcona will use the donations to host future educational conferences which are designed to help established farms and businesses, as well as those interested in starting a new farm to fork business.
The donations raised through Patronicity.org were from 70 individuals, mostly from Alcona County and Michigan, but several from out of state.
