FNS and AFHK have worked together to award nearly $30 million in grants to 264 SFAs across 44 states and the District of Columbia, reaching students in some of our nation's highest need schools. Each small and/or rural school district will receive up to $150,000 to support them in improving the nutritional quality of their meals and modernizing their operations, through efforts which could include:
- Innovative staff training programs;
- Kitchen updates and renovations;
- Redesigning food preparation and service spaces;
- Other school-district led efforts to support school meals and school nutrition professionals.
The AFHK map below features the selected SFAs and their grant amounts. The map will be updated on a rolling basis as SFAs formalize their grant agreements. More information about the grants can be found on the Action for Healthy Kids website.
