School Wellness In Action

Thursday, January 2, 2014, 4:15 pm

In January, Montana Team Nutrition will be releasing a 2014 School Wellness In Action Mini-Grant Program for school districts participating in the National School Meals Program.  This competitive grant program will fund 10 - $2,000 mini grants to support school districts in taking sustainable action steps for implementing the district’s school wellness policy. 

Student wellness strategies may focus on meeting nutrition guidelines for all foods sold in schools; strengthening nutrition education (including kid’s cooking programs); enhancing nutrition promotion; initiating or expanding farm to school programs; strengthening physical activity opportunities; or applying for a healthy schools award ( i.e. HealthierUS School Challenge or Montana Menu Challenge).   Funds can support staff time, professional development opportunities, and procurement of educational or promotional resources.
