Apples4Ed $10,000 Grant for Healthy Snacking!


Attention SNA members! SNA is pleased to announce a new partnership with our friends over at the U.S. Apple Association and the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture on a new initiative called Apples4Ed. Starting this week, schools across the country will compete for a $10,000 grant to bring a healthy snacking program to their campus—and we encourage you to jump in and nominate your school.

So what types of projects will be funded? All kinds. Give us your best idea. Do you want to harvest a school garden on campus? Or do you have big plans for a snack pantry to keep students fueled and energized through the day? What about a new cooking and fitness competition to promote healthy lifestyles? Get creative.

We’re biased, but we know the best submissions will come from our members. You know the role nutrition plays and not only at the breakfast, lunch and dinner table. You live it and see it every day. Healthy snacks can drive alertness, focus and energy. Equipping kids with what they need to be successful in the classroom—begins with you and a school’s nutrition program.

Go to to learn more and submit your idea through the online form before November 30, 2017.

Good luck and happy snacking!
