Summary

In the USA, 124K schools closed due to COVID-19 yet continue school meal operations for 30M students who rely on them. There is an urgent need for resources to distribute healthy meals to kids outside the school building. To help schools maintain continuity of school meal programs, GENYOUth launched our COVID-19 Emergency School Meal Delivery Fund to help schools provide nourishing meals in their communities. Over 13K grant applications have been submitted, requesting support totaling over $37M.

Challenge

While 124,000 schools are closed, many remain open to continue feeding students. Frontline workers, including school nutrition professionals, bus drivers and volunteers are distributing school meals through a variety of methods that enable social distancing. Federal funding continues to support school feeding for the 30 million students who rely on them, but schools need additional resources and equipment to safely package and distribute healthy meals to children.

Solution

GENYOUth's COVID-19 Emergency School Meal Delivery Fund is providing schools with grants of up to $3,000 to quickly purchase equipment and resources needed to distribute and deliver healthy meals to youth and their families, including cold storage for perishable items (milk/dairy, fruits, vegetables, proteins), transportation, single-serve packaging, and safety and sanitation tools such as face masks and serving gloves.

Long-Term Impact

GENYOUth's COVID-19 Emergency School Meal Delivery Fund grants are helping to provide students with at least two meals each week day for three months; supporting equipment purchases that make it possible for more than 92,160 meals to be served over three months; and supporting the purchase of disposable supplies and sanitation items such as face masks and serving gloves to serve over 30,000 meals in just one month. GENYOUth is continuing to provide support to schools across the country.
