Willie Nelson signs checks for Farm Aid Grant recipients


Today we announced Farm Aid’s 2016 grant recipients. Here’s Willie Nelson signing each of the grant checks before they go out in the mail!

Willie says, “Farm Aid is proud to make grants to support so many good people engaged in the work of changing our food system. The real power of Farm Aid’s grants is in the network of changemakers they knit together, in cities and rural areas across this country.”

$556,315 was granted to 82 family farm, rural service and urban agriculture organizations in 35 states and the District of Columbia. Grants ranged from $5,000 to $20,000.
