Warner & Kaine Announce $150,000 in Federal Funding to Turn Old Prices Fork Elementary School Building Into Local Food Center

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine announced $150,000 in federal funding to help transform the 8,667 square foot space in the old Prices Fork Elementary School in Montgomery County into a local food enterprise center. The transformed space will include a commercial incubator kitchen, farm-to-table restaurant, a local craft brewery, a retail consignment market, and business incubation and support services. 

“This revitalization is the result of a real partnership between local businesses and the community to invest in Prices Fork. We’re proud to support the project with federal funding that will help contribute to the food center’s success,” the Senators said.

This grant was awarded through the United States Department of Agriculture’s Rural Business Development Grants Program.
