California Department of Education – National School Lunch Program

  Grant Amount: $100,000


The California Department of Education is accepting applications to the National School Lunch Program Equipment Assistance Grant.

These funds allow school food authorities (SFA) to purchase food service equipment to serve healthier meals that meet the updated meal pattern requirements, replace outdated and worn equipment, serve meals during disaster (pandemic or natural disaster), improve food safety, and to help support the establishment, maintenance, or expansion of the School Breakfast Program.


Public school districts, county offices of education, directly funded charter schools, private schools, and residential child care institutions that participate in the NSLP or School Breakfast Program can apply for this grant. Any of the above qualifying local agencies previously approved for the NSLP, and would otherwise be operating the NSLP in School Year 2022-23, may apply for the EAG while using the flexibilities granted under the Seamless Summer Option.

The Nutrition Services Division (NSD) will give priority to those sites that have not received an equipment grant since 2018. The NSD may consider SFAs with excess net cash resources (NCR) to be ineligible to receive an equipment grant. In accordance with Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 210.14(b), an SFA shall limit its NCR to an amount that does not exceed three-month average expenditures for its food service account.
