Continuing School Meals

In Tennessee, grants have been awarded to help school meal programs continue to feed students despite school closures due to COVID-19, with The Special Alternative Feeding Grants designed for emergency student feeding. Between the Special Alternative Feeding Grants and the Dairy Optimization Grants, schools awarded represent 514 new programs, potentially feeding over 207,150 students at 434 schools! Every student meal provided through this program will include milk to drink, and more dairy may be included in the meal. Wow!
