School Meals Application Outreach Toolkit


The School Meals Applications Outreach Toolkit is designed to help school districts get the word out to families about why completing and submitting free and reduced-price meal applications is important. The contents of this toolkit can also be adapted for outreach for the completion and submission of alternative income forms.

The toolkit comes complete with:

  • Guidance about connecting with families, organized in a checklist format,
  • Outreach examples from other school districts, and
  • Ready to use and customizable No Kid Hungry resources, available in both English and Spanish.

Districts can use this toolkit to best meet their needs – by applying the guidance to connect with families, to get inspired by examples from other districts, or by utilizing the customizable resources.
