After School Meals Program
The After School Meals Program is designed to offer a nutritious meal to students enrolled in an after school program.
Schools that wish to participate in the After School Meals Program must meet the following requirements:
- The meal must be served after a regular school day (after school dismissal).
- The After School Meals program must include educational and/or enrichment activities.
- The program provider and cafeteria staff must complete the annual required training.
STEP 1. COMPLETE Application- The application includes a training confirmation that verifies the Program Coordinator’s understanding of the regulations and guidelines of the After School Feeding Program. You will be prompted to complete the training confirmation on the second page of the application. After submitting your online application, immediately upload the roster of students using the template provided in step 2. Only complete ONE application per year, if you need to update the roster go to step 2. Partially completed applications may cause delays in processing and delays in meal service.
STEP 2. UPLOAD Roster of students –An accurate listing of enrolled students must be submitted using the roster template provided in the link below. Student’s first and last name must be entered into the roster template. This enrollment listing will also be used to take attendance for food service. If your program enrolls more students after the initial roster submission, upload the roster again using this form. We will update our information and have a more accurate listing of the program’s enrollment and attendance.
Please note that once meal service starts, requests to increase the number of meals ordered per location takes three working days to be adjusted in our system once you have uploaded the adjusted student roster.
Once we receive your application it can take up to two weeks to approve the program and start meal service to your location. We will do our best to service your students as soon as we are able.
When does my paperwork need to be submitted?
Completed paperwork must be received by 2 pm, 4 weeks prior to the start of the program.
