Dairy Council® of Nevada recognizes the importance of a healthy, nutritious summer feeding program on the health of Nevada children. Summer feeding provides the nutritional bridge between the end of one school year and the beginning of a new school year. Dairy Council® of Nevada is committed to assisting schools to increase participation in their summer feeding programs so students return to school in the fall, healthy and ready to learn.
Dairy Council® of Nevada will award selected schools a grant of $2,000 to propose an expansion of their Summer Food Service Program with an emphasis on healthy eating and daily exercise that includes the promotion of at least three servings of dairy a day.
