School nutrition professionals know one way to manage successful meal programs that work for the children they serve is to seek external grant funding sources. These funds may be used for a variety of purposes including training in menu planning, food preparation, nutrition education, local school wellness policies and the purchase of equipment. How do districts seek grant funding? What are the responsibilities once the funding is received? What are good practices when applying for a grant?

As always, a continuing education certificate will be available after completion of the webinar.
