For Schools’ Sake – Help us Feed our Nation’s Kids!
Take action and donate today to GENYOUth’s COVID-19 School Nutrition Fund!
Over 123,000 school closures are impacting 54.8 million students – including 30 million children who depend on the USDA’s school meal program.
Now more than ever we need to make sure we Feed Our Nation’s Kids! And we need YOUR help! GENYOUth is providing grants of up to $3,000 per school to supply much-needed resources for meal distribution and delivery. From soft-sided coolers, bags and containers for individual servings, to protective gear for food service sanitation and safety, this equipment will ensure our children continue to receive the nutritious meals they need.
To date we have deployed $1 million in emergency funding, but the need is far greater than anything we have ever experienced!
Since GENYOUth’s inception almost a decade ago, we have provided over $100 million dollars in grants and equipment to schools, while serving students in every zip code in the nation. With our extensive network of schools and your help, together, we will make an immediate impact.
Grant applications are now live. Click here to view the application or email info@GENYOUthNow.org with any questions.
