The Sodexo School Engagement Grant is designed to ensure that every child in the United States grows up with access to enough nutritious food. The programs funded through this grant will engage teachers and students in learning about the incidence of childhood hunger in their community, and in leading meaningful activities that facilitate access to nutritious food for all children, especially those most at risk. The program will be implemented through a service-learning “Semester of Service” focused on childhood hunger. Ten grants of $5,000 will be awarded to qualified programs that engage a minimum of 20 students.
