2013 Team Nutrition Grant Offers Free Training and Sub-grants

School Foodservice Excellence Training (SFET) includes training on Smarter Lunchroom principles and applying for the HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC). Smarter Lunchroom practices involve using simple, actionable, low-cost steps designed to increase student selection of healthy meal options and decrease plate waste. Sub-grant opportunities are available to schools that implement the SFET training and apply for the HUSSC.

To learn more, please view our recorded webinar which took place on April 8, 2014. Applications for the sub-grants are due May 15, 2014 and may be downloaded here. Completed applications may be scanned and emailed to Beth Foland at
