A new source of funding and technical assistance is now available to help summer meals and afterschool sponsors, sites and vendors serve up more meals to children across New Jersey.

The New Jersey Child Nutrition Fund (NJCNF), created and administered by the Reinvestment Fund and supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, provides capital funding and technical assistance to child care providers, community-based organizations and food vendors who participate or seek to participate in the federal Summer Food Service Program and Child and Adult Care Food Program.

Through a rolling application process, funding will be available with grant awards ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 to fund program planning and additional grant and loan funds available as capital investment and implementation awards.
