Iowa Nutrition Network School Grant Program

The Iowa Nutrition Network School Grant Program (INNSGP) awards funding to a variety of agencies to provide nutrition education in schools in low-income areas. Elgible schools must have 55% (rural areas) and 60% (urban areas) or more of the students participate in free and reduced price meals.

The program aims to increase the likelihood that low-resource audiences can make healthy food choices consistent with USDA’s MyPlate. To meet this goal, the Iowa Nutrition Network delivers traditional nutrition education along with social marketing strategies and policy, system and environmental change initiatives.
