The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) has awarded its first grants from its Help Feed School Kids Now fundraising campaign.

Six school districts across the country were each awarded $1,500 to help them purchase the needed equipment to run their programs during COVID-19, such as temperature-controlled transport carts, portable refrigerator units, insulated bags and more. 

The foundation has also partnered with nonprofits GENYOUth and NDC to raise more awareness for the campaign. The organizations also donated $30,000 to the cause.
