The Slaton Independent School District was among six districts in Texas to receive a $30,000 grant to help expand and improve their child nutrition programs.
No Kid Hungry Texas announced $180,000 in funding to address childhood hunger in rural communities through its Rural School District Cohort, a collaboration with the Texas Rural Education Association.
This is the second group of districts to participate in the initiative, first launched in 2021.
SISD will participate in the year-long program, designed to support peer-to-peer collaboration and innovation around the unique challenges and opportunities associated with feeding students in rural school districts.
The organization awarded a $30,000 grant to each school district to expand and improve their child nutrition programs.
They will also bring together the child nutrition director from each district to share best practices and then adapt them locally with their own team.
