Salad Bar Grants

Who May Apply?

Any K-12 school district participating in the National School Lunch Program is eligible to apply. There is one application that accommodates either an application for a single salad bar package or for larger districts, multiple salad bar packages. Schools currently awarded with the Bronze status or above in the Healthier US School Challenge (HUSSC) automatically qualify for a salad bar donation, with the stipulation that the school or district desires and can support a salad bar every day in school lunch.

How Does This Process Work?

1. Submit Completed Application
2. Application Approved for Funding
3. Your district appears on our donation page list of districts eligible for funding and is searchable from the "find your school/district" button on the home page
4. The Initiative and Your Community Raise funds for Your Salad Bars
5. Once Funded, Your Salad Bar is Ordered for Shipment
6. Your Children Eat More Fruits and Vegetables
7. Your district will complete an evaluation twice over the two years following your grant.

Grant Eligibility Applications Are Being Accepted Now!

All applications must be submitted electronically and must be approved by your Food Service Director. The application can be found at

Once Our Bar is Funded When Will We Receive It?

There are no fundraising deadlines. Salad bars will arrive within five weeks of being ordered. We expect to ship salad bars throughout the year.
No salad bars will ship without being fully funded.

What Salad Bar is Provided?

A portable 72 inch 5-well insulated salad bar with two tray slides; divider bars; two 4-inch deep full pans with covers; four 4-inch deep half pans with covers; and twelve 4-inch deep quarter pans with covers; five buffet chilling pads; 16 serving tongs. Salad Bar implantation resources are available from the resources tab of our website.
*If your local health authority's code requires the use of a mechanically cooled salad bar, you must notify us at upon submission of a completed application -- please type MAY NEED ELECTRIC in the subject line and include your name, the name of your school or district and contact phone number.
