Overview

School Nutrition Programs | Program Guidance | Forms | Resources | Nutrition Education

The ASP operates under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). It provides cash reimbursement to help schools serve snacks to children in afterschool activities aimed at promoting the health and well-being of children and youth in Connecticut’s communities. Schools must provide children with regularly scheduled activities in an organized, structured, and supervised environment that includes educational or enrichment activities, e.g., mentoring/tutoring programs. Programs must meet state or local licensing requirements and health and safety standards. Competitive interscholastic sports teams are not eligible.
