US (GA) UGA receives million-dollar federal grant to improve food production in Peach State

University of Georgia has received more than a million dollars in grant money from the United States Department of Agriculture.
The $1.5 million grant is supposed to help advance agricultural initiatives and food production in the Peach State, officials said.
“This grant is an opportunity for UGA to put its strengths in community engagement and agricultural innovation to use in important ways for our home state,” said University of Georgia President Jere W. Morehead.

UGA's Archway Partnership will connect experts with farmers to look into the needs of the agricultural community. They will then connect them to resources to help them expand.

Federal funds awarded to the university are also supposed to grow the supply food chain, with the goal of creating fair and competitive markets.

According to a press release, the grant will support projects that could target areas of food access, education and more.
