School Nutrition Programs
The programs within the School Nutrition Programs are the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, the After-school Snack Program, and the Special Milk Program. These programs are available to eligible public and non-profit private schools and child care institutions on request. By participating in these programs, each school or institution that serves a lunch or milk complying with the requirements can receive financial assistance.
Eat Right, Move More Program
The Eat Right, Move More Program, a partnership between the New York Jets football team, the Department of Agriculture and the American Dairy Association & Dairy Council’s Fuel Up to Play 60 campaign, encourages New Jersey school children to take advantage of healthy foods in their school cafeterias and become more active. Part of this program is a contest for schools who are excelling in their nutrition programs. This contest is open to all schools participating in the National School Lunch Program.
