No Kid Hungry Louisiana School Nutrition Grant Opportunity


X Logo


The No Kid Hungry School Nutrition Grant Opportunity will provide funding to school districts and schools to augment child nutrition programs and emergency food programs to ensure children and families have access to healthy meals at school and at home.

Grant funds will also be provided to communities experiencing economic hardship and having existing or increasingly high COVID-19 infection rates. In determining economic impact, No Kid Hungry will review data points including: free and reduced eligible students, unemployment rates, child food insecurity rates, and the social vulnerability index score.


Applicants will be required to provide the following information:

District Food Service Director and Superintendent contact
Historic district-wide enrollment and school meals participation for breakfast, lunch, and afterschool meals and snacks from October 2019 and SY19-20
