The California Community Child Nutrition Snack Pilot is Here!


6.28.2004 CFPA has outlined a series of resources related to the California's year round child nutrition pilot authorized in the 2004 Child Nutrition Bill. This California-specific pilot allows community (non-school) sites participating in the Summer Food Service Program to offer afterschool snacks during the academic year without the need to complete additional paperwork. Here you will find everything you need to know about getting the funding to feed more kids a healthy snack in your community.
