This fall, the No Kid Hungry Georgia Campaign is offering a school nutrition grant opportunity to enable districts and schools to maximize the child nutrition programs and other emergency food programs to ensure children and families have access to healthy meals at school and at home during the school year and/or summer months.
No Kid Hungry knows that school districts play an essential role in ensuring students receive nutritious meals to learn, grow, and thrive to their full potential. These flexible grants will allow school districts across the state to respond to the growing needs and emerging opportunities to provide meals and resources to kids and families.
As school districts face significant challenges maintaining and expanding meal programs in this uncertain environment, funds are intended to support school districts in adaptability to meet the changing needs of students and families. We can help you cover the following expenses:
Applicants will be required to provide the following information:
Share Our Strength is committed to addressing the systemic and structural health, social, and economic inequities that disproportionately impact communities of color. To ensure we support individuals and communities most affected by these inequalities, we will prioritize grant funds to organizations serving communities where over 50% of the population identify as Black, Latino, Native American, Asian, Hawaiian native, or Pacific Islander. We will also prioritize funds to rural communities that face unique challenges in addressing hunger and communities where members experience intersectionality of identities and environmental factors that contribute to several discriminations and disadvantages.
As the effects of Covid-19 continue to be felt in communities across the country, grant funds will be provided to communities experiencing extreme economic hardship. In determining economic impact, No Kid Hungry will review data points including free and reduced eligible students, child food insecurity projections, and the social vulnerability index score.
Taking into consideration equity and economic hardship, funds will be prioritized to support community organizations with a solid and sustainable plan for maximizing participation in the child nutrition programs and/or leveraging other programs to combat food insecurity such as emergency food programs (weekend meal programs, school pantries, etc.), children and family outreach and engagement, and federal nutrition program enrollment. Applications should address both the immediate need to alleviate hunger and support children and the long-term sustainability of programming.
