A new University of Maine initiative to build agricultural literacy through an immersive culinary experience for career and technical education (CTE) culinary arts instructors is one of 21 projects funded nationwide by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture. NIFA has invested $6.2 million in the Professional Development and Secondary School Teacher grants to increase the number of K-14 teachers and educational professionals trained in the food and agricultural sciences. The grants to prepare more educators in food and ag science, and support best teaching practices that enhance student learning outcomes, are part of NIFA's Agriculture and Food Research Initiative.
