American Bake Sale Offers Funding to Increase Participation in Afterschool and Summer Nutrition Programs
Deadline: July 13, 2007

Share Our Strength (<a href=""></a>) is accepting grant applications from current sponsors of summer and afterschool meal programs for children that utilize USDA reimbursement and organizations that increase participation through advocacy and outreach.

Grants from Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale (<a href=""></a>) will support efforts to increase participation among low-income school-age children in afterschool and summer meal programs. Share Our Strength is specifically interested in increasing participation in meal programs that utilize USDA reimbursement through the Summer Food Service Program, National School Lunch Program, or Child and Adult Care Food Program.

Grants will only be awarded to nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations, schools with a valid NCES code, or local government entities that work to ensure children have access to afterschool and summer meal programs. To be eligible to apply for a grant from the program, organizations must also do at least one of the following: 1) sponsor USDA-reimbursed afterschool and/or summer meal programs for school-age children; 2) work to increase participation in USDA-reimbursed afterschool and summer meal programs through outreach and advocacy.
