The Wisconsin Pork Association has created a program offering mini-grants for Family & Consumer Science teachers. Grant monies are to be used for the purchase of FRESH pork (not processed products like bacon, ham, or sausage) for classroom/lab experiences. The mini-grants start at $20 per teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. A limited number of mini-grants are available.
All mini-grant funds for the 2018/2019 school year have been awarded. Check back again soon for more opportunities from Wisconsin Pork.
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 online lesson plans developed by Wisconsin Pork Association in conjunction with the mini-grants. Click here to access our Family and Consumer Science Lesson Plans.
We appreciate your help in educating future consumers about the value of adding lean, nutritious pork to the diet.
