Funding for School Salad Bars
- LET'S MOVE Salad Bars to Schools Grants
The grants are used to apply for the 6 foot (five well) salad bar package. This is for schools that serve at least 100 reimbursable meals. You must offer the salad bar as part of the reimbursable meals served in your district. Districts will be able to apply starting Monday, September 9, 2012. For more details visit the website.
