SNAP Support Grants Now Open Through SOS

It’s almost summer and Share Our Strength reminds schools about its grants that increase access to summer meals programs offered through USDA’s Summer Food Service Program and Nat’l School Lunch effort.

Deadlines: Rolling (maximum award is $10,000).

These grants are open to school and nonprofits, helping them extend their feeding programs to disadvantaged kids through the summer when classes are out. A primary focus is to end childhood hunger through the groups’s state and city-based No Kid Hungry campaigns. The grants also support efforts to enroll more eligible families in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program; increase the availability of school breakfast through alternative models such as “in-classroom” breakfast and “grab-n-go” breakfasts; and improve access to afterschool snack and meal programs, as well as child care programs.
