Programs must demonstrate measurable progress in increasing access to affordable basic nutritional needs (for example, community gardens, mobile veggie and fruit stands, food security programs, etc.).
Overall, the grant program focuses on eliminating gaps in health disparities. Thus, each application’s program should focus on nutrition access, affordability, and education. The programs should seek to serve those at the root of health disparities. Each program should address at least one, but not limited to the following:
- Lack of access to affordable nutritional foods and food deserts;
- Lack of access to quality nutrition education;
- Lack of access to vital resources to help families make healthier decisions; or
- Lack of access to affordable basic nutritional needs.
