Bishop Carroll receives Healthy Meals Incentives Grant for cafeteria equipment

Together, with Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) and USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), Bishop Carroll is dedicated to strengthening school meals to improve children’s health. As part of the Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative, we are excited to share that BC was awarded a grant to support our efforts to

improve the nutritional quality of school meals with the purchase of a new convention oven. Food Services Director Becky Seymour led the initiative to apply for this generous grant.

“The new oven will help our staff to prepare higher quantities of high-quality scratch-made items and meals,” Becky said. “We are excited to test and offer some new recipes this year thanks to the addition of this equipment.”

The Healthy Meals Incentives grant is part of an allocation of nearly $30 million by the USDA FNS to 264 school districts across 44 states and the District of Columbia.
