  • The Arkansas-based National Agricultural Law Center has received a $225,000 grant from USDA Rural Development to assist the local and regional food industry in the Arkansas Delta.
    The grant was announced Monday and is designed to address persistent poverty areas in Arkansas and other states.
    The project aims to assist growers, entrepreneurs and others in the food supply chain with producing, processing and delivering locally grown foods to area markets and public food programs such as school lunches.
    The project specifically targets Jefferson, Phillips and St. Francis counties and will help establish and support ongoing efforts surrounding areas.
