Child Nutrition Dashboard

The child nutrition dashboard is comprised of public data published in the child nutrition tables. The goal of the dashboard is to provide national and state level visualization of meals served, participation, and funding data for the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Child and Adult Care Food Program, and Summer Food Service Program. The dashboard can be used by federal, state, and local organizations to assess trends in child nutrition program activity.

Please see our About the Data Guide if you have data-related questions.
