To assess whether At-Risk After-School Meal programming is right for you, use the No Kid Hungry Center for Best Practices After-School Assessment Tool to help determine your program’s eligibility.
Most user-friendly and comprehensive guide providing information on 1) determining if your after-school program is eligible and leaning how to start, 2) strategies to reduce paperwork and administrative barriers and 3) strategies to increase participation.
To see how implementation or expansion will affect your bottom line, check out the No Kid Hungry School Calculator, an interactive tool that, based on the information entered, automatically populates annual estimated costs, reimbursements and increases in student participation for not only after-school meals, but breakfast and summer too. This is a great tool for not only schools, but all eligible non-profit or for-profit entities.
This interactive map created by the Food and Nutrition Service is an excellent way to target new site locations and allows you to filter by a range of layers including summer site locations, free and reduced price eligibility areas, school districts, housing units, churches, etc. This is a great planning tool for determining At-Risk and Summer Meals sites.
