School Nutrition Equipment Grants

Midwest Dairy is pleased to offer school Nutrition Equipment grants. The online grant application will be open from April 1-30, 2018.  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.

Schools may apply for up to $5,000 to purchase food service 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. Not all applications will be approved for funding, even if all requirements are met.
