NLC’s Cities Combating Hunger through After School and Summer Meal Programs (CHAMPS) is a grant opportunity for cities to ensure low-income youth continue to have access to healthy food when school is out.
City agencies in California are eligible to apply for $5,000-$40,000 grants and technical assistance to enhance their efforts to combat childhood hunger when school is out through USDA summer and after school meal programs
. These grant funds can be used to support activities (through December 2017) such as: youth employment, promotional activities, operational needs and other supports that increase access to out-of-school-time meal programs.
