Meme Hoes, 4, of Minneapolis waited her turn for an ear of corn at the Farm to School community barbecue at the Minneapolis Public Schools Culinary and Wellness Services building in 2017.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is seeking to bring more Minnesota-produced fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy into the state's schools with the help of a grant program that helps schools outfit their kitchens.

Schools and educational organizations have until Nov. 7 to apply for the Agricultural Growth, Research and Innovation (AGRI) Farm to School and Farm to Early Care and Education grants, which will provide a combined $374,000 for equipment or the development of new food programs for students. Individual schools and groups can win up to $50,000 for equipment and up to $30,000 for project planning.
