Afterschool Snack Program (ASP)
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) offers reimbursement to help schools serve snacks to children after their regular school day ends. Afterschool snacks give children a nutritional boost and draw them into supervised activities that are safe, fun and filled with learning opportunities.
Thinking of Participating in the Afterschool Snack Program?
In order for a site to participate, your school district must run the NSLP and sponsor or operate the afterschool care program. Additionally the school district must sponsor or operate an afterschool care program which provides children with regularly scheduled educational or enrichment activities in a supervised environment.
To apply, contact the school food service director in your school district or contact the Office of School Nutrition for more information. Applications will be accepted year round. To understand program requirements and qualifying criteria please review, the Afterschool Snack Program Guide and Afterschool Snack Program Fact Sheet.
