On Aug.16, 2023, FNS announced the award of $9.4 million in federal funding for the FY 2023 Team Nutrition Grant for Supporting Nutrition Education for School-Aged Children.
In Fiscal Year 2018, the Food and Nutrition Service awarded more than $3.7 million in Child and Adult Care Food Program Meal Service Training Grants to 38 state agencies.
To assist states and CACFP operators with implementation of the updated CACFP meal patterns, Congress appropriated funds for the provision of noncompetitive grants for states to provide hands-on training and technical assistance. These meal service training grants will assist state agencies in providing job skills training for CACFP operators on ways to plan and prepare and serve nutritious foods.
The Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Act of 2010 authorizes the FNS to award grants for projects aimed at improving the health and nutrition of children in child care settings.
