Request for Applications: 2015 Team Nutrition Training Grants (CFDA#: 10.574)

States must apply Team Nutrition’s three behavior-focused strategies in their proposals:

  • Provide training and technical assistance to school nutrition foodservice professionals to enable them to prepare and serve nutritious meals that appeal to students.
  • Provide fun and interactive nutrition education for children, teachers, parents and others caregivers.
  • Build school and community support for creating healthy school environments that are conducive to healthy eating and physical activity.
