Grant funding is available to support a variety of strategies to increase access to nutritious food and support young kids and families in the new operating environment created as a result of the coronavirus, including:
1) Working with health care providers and community organizations to promote awareness of and increase participation in federal nutrition programs like WIC, SNAP and Medicaid;
2) Using vouchers, coupons, food “farmacies,” meal kits, “food prescriptions,” boxes and other means to offer healthy food supports to families by addressing access and transportation challenges through delivery, pick-up or store visits;
3) Innovative partnerships (like with a local restaurant or early child care centers that are serving as community food access points) that bring various community groups together to address food security needs of young children and their families;
4) Healthy food access programs built as a response to ideas developed from community engagement;
5) Supporting enrollment in SNAP, WIC and Pandemic-EBT programs or other programs that support 0-5-year-olds.
