About the Program
Through key partnerships, we developed the Salad Bars to Schools grant program with the mission of donating salad bars to U.S. schools to allow kids to have daily access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Salad Bars to Schools grant includes salad bar equipment and access to salad bar specific training modules available through Chef Ann Foundation’s School Food Institute.
Salad Bar Economics
Salad bars are a viable component of a federally reimbursed school lunch. The cost for one freestanding, mobile salad bar grant is $3,800. This includes everything a school needs to get started: the bar, chill pads, pans and tongs. Each salad bar can serve a school for 10 years, which makes it incredibly cost effective!
