Dairy Council of Arizona recognizes the importance of a healthy, nutritious summer feeding program on the health of Arizona 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 Arizona is committed to assisting schools and non-profit sites increase participation in their summer feeding programs so students return to school in the fall, healthy and reading to learn. Dairy Council of Arizona will award selected schools and non-profits a $2,000 grant to propose expansion of their Summer Food Service Program with an emphasis on healthy eating and daily exercise that includes promotion of at least three servings of dairy a day. The ultimate goal of the grant program is to aim to increase the total number of milk, cheese, and yogurt products served.
