Grants to USA state government agencies for school nutrition initiatives. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to build State capacity and sustainable infrastructure to develop, standardize, prepare, and test recipes for the School Meal Programs. FNS will award funds to state agencies that administer the National School Lunch Program.
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Recipe Development will support States in understanding, developing, and using standardized recipes within the School Meal Programs. Using grant funds, States will be able to develop nutritious and tasty recipes that utilize local agricultural products and reflect local food preparation practices and appeal to students' taste preferences. States will build their capacity to standardize recipes, show how standardized recipes credit towards school meal pattern requirements, and assist School Food Authorities in engaging students in menu development. Standardized recipes are critical to the success of school meals because they provide consistent results in quality, quantity, and nutrient contribution, while helping to reduce food waste and food costs. FNS intends to share the recipes and grantee success stories via the Team Nutrition Website at https://www.fns.usda.gov/tn and Child Nutrition Recipe Box at https://theicn.org/cnrb.
For Allowable Costs, see pages 9-12 of the RFA document in Attached Files below.
