School Food Support Initiative

The Life Time Foundation, Chef Ann Foundation, and Whole Kids Foundation are joining forces to provide technical assistance grants for up to seven U.S. school districts in 2017!  Assessing your current operations is a key step towards enriching and building a stronger food service program.  It allows you to identify opportunities and challenges to accomplish your department’s goals.  School Food Support Initiative will work with the selected districts through a technical assistance program that includes a workshop for food service directors, on-site assessment and on-site assessment debrief and strategic planning, along with peer-to-peer collaboration and access to a food service program Assistance Grant. 

The program has a value of approximately $192,000 per participating district (depending on district size). Together with you, we can provide children with the real, healthy food they deserve by eliminating highly-processed and artificial ingredients from school menus.
