Equity in school nutrition is a vital part of equity in education. 
When schools have equitable nutrition programs, not only will kids be healthier and more prepared to learn,
but schools will in turn see better academic performance and a decrease in behavioral issues. 

Nebraska Appleseed and No Kid Hungry have created 
Nebraska-specific district fact sheets and nutrition equity materials
that can help you evaluate and improve your school nutrition programs.

Find your district’s data on an interactive map and learn more at neappleseed.org/schoolnutritionequity.

What is Nebraska SNAC?

The Nebraska Student Nutrition Action Committee (SNAC), formerly known as Go Big Breakfast, focuses on expanding access to child nutrition programs during both school and out-of-school time in order to make sure every child has the food they need to reach their full potential. We focus on school breakfast, school lunch, the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and Provision 2, the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) At Risk After School meals, and Farm-to-School.

Mission and Vision
