Midwest Dairy is pleased to offer School Nutrition Equipment Grants. The on-line grant application will be open from April 1-30.
The purpose of the grant is to assist School Nutrition Directors in the purchase of equipment that will enhance the long-term implementation of their school meal programs with a preference to increasing school breakfasts served outside the cafeteria and after-school suppers. Nebraska schools currently rank near the bottom of the country in school breakfast participation.
Schools may apply for up to $5000 to purchase foodservice equipment for the storage, handling and delivery of dairy foods. Equipment may include: insulated bags, transportation carts, kiosks or remote point of sale equipment for meals sold outside of the cafeteria.
For more information, watch this short video on how to complete a successful grant application. These grants are competitive and not all applications will be approved for funding even if all requirements are met.
