Child Nutrition Programs VISTA
Increase low-income students’ access to federal meal programs by enhancing technical assistance and available tools for schools and community partners operating these programs across Washington. Consult with schools and community partners to support their implementing and/or improving alternative breakfast models, the Summer Food Service Program, the Seamless Summer Option, and the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Additionally, to raise awareness of the Community Eligibility Provision to eligible schools. Key Washington counties for this work include Chelan, Clark, Cowlitz, Ferry, King, Klickitat, Lewis, Lincoln, Mason, Okanogan, Pierce, Spokane, Stevens, Thurston, and Walla Walla. This project fights poverty by increasing access to federal meal programs for students and by raising awareness of the Community Eligibility Provision. Increased access to federal meal programs, and increased adoption among schools of the Community Eligibility Provision, allows students to access low cost and free meals through schools and community partners, which allows families to allocate resources elsewhere to meet their basic needs. Additionally, these programs ensure young people are accessing reliable, nutritious meals, which support educational outcomes.
