Alabama schools receive $422,500 from no kid hungry to feed kids amidst COVID-19


MONTGOMERY, Ala. – As part of the No Kid Hungry effort to ensure all children in Alabama remain nourished and healthy, this national campaign recently announced the addition of $422,500 in grants to 12 school districts, to support school meal programs this semester.

“School meals are available to students across Alabama no matter if they are learning remotely or participating in a hybrid model,” says Eleni Towns, Associate Director for the No Kid Hungry campaign. “We at No Kid Hungry are in awe of the phenomenal work of school nutrition staff. They have been at the front lines of this pandemic, working creatively and diligently to reach all of their students by offering curbside pickup meals, delivering meals to bus stops or community centers, collaborating with community groups to offer additional family food boxes, and more.”

Families are encouraged to reach out to their local school systems to inquire about how school meals could support their students. Families can also text FOOD or COMIDA to 877 877 to learn more about meal sites available near them. Below are the recipients of this round of No Kid Hungry grants across the state of Alabama:
