Child Nutrition Department Lands Major Grant

The NLRSD Child Nutrition Department received a nearly $218,000 grant from the Local Foods in School Meals Cooperative Agreement Program. This grant will establish cooperative agreements between Arkansas schools, local and underserved farmers/producers, and small businesses to provide local food to schools. It will enhance our schools’ opportunities to purchase local products from local producers.

The Local Food for Schools Cooperative Agreement Program provides an opportunity for states to strengthen ties between local farmers, ranchers, food businesses and schools, and gives students access to nutritious foods unique to the area they live in, building stronger connections across local communities.
