help me news story

The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) has been awarded an additional $100,000 from No Kid Hungry to support the Foundation’s COVID-19 emergency feeding grant program. SNF grants have been assisting school meal programs that mobilized grab-and-go meal service for students when COVID-19 forced school closures nationwide in March of this year.  SNF continues to support school feeding programs with this next round of grants.

School Nutrition operators need their own unique assistance in feeding the millions of children attending school - whether attendance is in-person, virtual or a combination of both. Applications for Fall Emergency Feeding will be accepted starting on Monday, November 16 and awarded on a rolling basis based on the volume of funds raised.

Are you interested in applying? On the application, you will be asked to supply SNF with basic information about yourself, your school district, and your school district’s top needs. In order to be eligible to apply, you must submit your business’s operating EIN. This application is open to both SNA members and non-members.
