As the global COVID-19 pandemic intensifies, shuttering schools and making it difficult to feed students, school food authorities (SFAs) and other community organizations can seek financial assistance through emergency grants from No Kid Hungry. This real-time assistance will ensure kids have access to the meals they need when schools are closed. The grants can be used to support local efforts like home-delivered meals, grab ‘n’ go meal programs, school and community pantries, backpack programs and other initiatives. No Kid Hungry is providing $1 million in grant funding immediately.
