Over £100,000 has been awarded to food and agricultural initiatives across Scotland to encourage more people to buy local.
The grants are dished out in order to stimulate the growth of local food initiatives and encourage more people to buy and support local producers.
A total of 23 projects will share £104,500 awarded via the Connect Local Regional Food Fund.
The fund is competitive, and applicants can apply for grants up to a maximum of £5000.
This year's recipients include Flowers to Food - Pollination in Sustainable Agriculture, the Glenkens Food Month and the Skye Food and Drink Festival.
Commenting on the awards, Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing said: “Providing funding to regional projects is just one of the ways we are supporting the industry’s ambition to raise the value of Scotland’s food and drink sector by 2030 to £30 billion.
“By doing so we help our domestic markets to grow, supporting local economies, and providing consumers with access to healthy, locally-grown produce.”
He added: “Reducing the number of miles food has to travel from farm to fork will also help us to achieve Scotland’s climate change ambitions.”
