BFL provides grants, nutrition education materials, access to our team of registered dietitians and nutritionists, equipment funding, assistance with the recruitment and placement of volunteers and access to our Keys to Success award winning best practices tools to groups who are operating, or plan to operate, breakfast, and/or lunch, and/or snack programs for children and youth enrolled in a school as defined by federal, provincial/territorial legislation and curriculum for K-12 (pre-K if associated with school). Grants may provide partial funding for food, equipment, supplies, insurance, food safety training, and honorariums.
BFL grants typically are not the primary financial source for School Nutrition Programs, rather they tend to supplement funding. Grant amounts are based upon a number of factors and range in size in accordance with these factors and qualified budgetary requirements. B FL understands the need for and encourages the use of multiple funding partners to ensure programs will be sustainable.
