USDA Healthy Meals Incentives Seeks to Transform School Food Systems

As part of a range of investments in school meals, USDA announced that it’s awarding $50 million through the Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative to four organizations to manage the School Food System Transformation Challenge Sub-Grants. These grants will foster innovation in the school food marketplace to get a wider variety of healthy, appealing foods into the marketplace and onto kids’ lunch trays. Schools and other eligible organizations can apply for the challenge sub-grants later this year and are encouraged to check the USDA’s Healthy Meals Incentives website for updates.
