The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) Division of Health and Wellness is soliciting applications for a Cafeteria Staff Training Grant. The purpose of this grant is to provide school foodservice/nutrition employees with knowledge, training, and tools they need to plan, prepare, and purchase healthy products to create nutritious, safe, and enjoyable school meals. To achieve this, the focus of the grant is to fund training sessions for school foodservice/nutrition employees at schools participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and Healthy Schools Act (HSA).
The fiscal year 2020 grant will be available in the Enterprise Grants Management System (EGMS) starting Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019 and will remain open through Friday, Dec. 6, 2019 at 3 p.m. No late applications will be accepted.
