Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Massachusetts school districts to purchase foodservice equipment in order to increase the recipient school's capacity to serve nutritious meals. Proposals should place an emphasis on serving more fruits and vegetables, as well as improving food safety, purchasing local produce, and expanding access.

In general, the funds may be used for purchasing equipment for the implementation of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) in (and only in) the specific school requesting the grant. Examples include equipment for heating, cooking, holding, serving, and refrigeration of foods used in the NSLP. The grant funds can be used for installation and delivery costs of the equipment purchased. Equipment requests may include new equipment, renovation of equipment, or replacement of equipment. If the equipment purchased for the school is ever sold, the proceeds must be returned to the School's Nutrition Program Account.

Priorities:

Schools that did not receive a School Nutrition Equipment Assistance grant in 2010 (ARRA), 2011 (USDA), or FY2014, FY2015, FY2016, FY2017, FY2018, FY2019, FY2020 (USDA). A slight preference for schools with a higher percentage of students eligible for free and reduced-price meals, though all NSLP participating schools are eligible.
