The Wisconsin Pork Association has created a program offering mini-grants for Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) teachers. Wisconsin FCS teachers may apply for $50 mini-grants. Grant funds must be used for the purchase of fresh pork (no bacon, ham, or sausage type processed products) for classroom/lab food experiences. The program assists teachers in educating future consumers about the value of adding lean, nutritious pork to their diet. Funds are a limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are due by December 1.
If you are looking for specific pork resources for your classroom, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with requests.
Teachers are encouraged to use the NEW online lesson plans developed by Wisconsin Pork Association in conjunction with the mini-grants.
We appreciate your help in educating future consumers about the value of adding lean, nutritious pork to the diet.
