Salad Bar Grant

In partnership with Salad Bars to Schools.

Give kids good choices, and they’ll make good choices! A salad bar at school means kids have the choice of fresh vegetables and fruit for lunch throughout the school year.

Kids with access to a salad bar in their school cafeteria not only put more fruits and veggies on their plates, they actually eat them! The CDC reports that kids with access to a salad bar consume 33% more fruits and vegetables.

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 $4,620. 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!
