Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $20,000 per school to Massachusetts school districts to purchase food service equipment in order to increase the recipient school's capacity to serve more 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.
