Social media is a powerful tool for school nutrition programs because it increases program visibility, educates families about school meals, and shares program success stories. The Share Your School Nutrition Story guide is a great tool to utilize social media in your school lunch program!
About SCA Funds
FNS is providing additional support to school nutrition professionals as they navigate continued supply chain challenges through a fourth allocation of Supply Chain Assistance (SCA) funds. SCA funds remain limited to the purchase of unprocessed or minimally processed domestic food products. As a reminder, to receive SCA funds, school food authorities (SFAs) must administer or operate the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and/or School Breakfast Program (SBP).
Round Four SCA Allocations
An allocation amount has been calculated for all eligible SFAs utilizing this formula:
Base Allocation ($5,000.00) + Enrollment Allocation (determined by total student enrollment as of October 2022) = Total Allocation
Please review the Round Four SCA Allocation Amounts spreadsheet to determine the allocation amount for each eligible SFA.
