Apply for Fuel Up to Play 60 School Nutrition Equipment Grants
We are excited to share that beginning on Monday, March 6, 2017, National Dairy Council, in partnership with Dairy Council of Arizona, will be continuing our commitment to help enhance students’ lives through the offer of school nutrition equipment grants to help improve the school meals environment.
These funds will be instrumental in helping schools achieve their wellness goals particularly around serving nutritious meals that students want to eat. Funds will help provide access to nutritious foods (including dairy) that students may not otherwise have available.
The competitive application process will provide grants to schools nationwide. Funding will support the purchase of new equipment and/or the renovation/replacement of existing equipment up to, but not exceeding, $5,000 per school. Equipment may include items such as utility carts, utensils, steamers, coolers, etc. Infrastructure elements may include building needs related to physical space, electricity, plumbing, ventilation and other remodeling needs related to school nutrition services.
Additional information is available on Fuel Up to Play 60’s website under the ‘Funding’ tab. Applications will be accepted until Friday April 28, 2017. [Click here to apply]
