Out-of-School Time Programs

Walmart Foundation 3 2015

The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is pleased to partner with the Walmart Foundation to support children’s health through park and recreation out-of-school time programs. NRPA will fund 80 park and recreation agencies in 2016 to focus on four main goals:


1. Increase the number of healthy meals children in low-income communities receive through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) during out-of-school times;
2. Provide nutrition literacy to children and families that creates behavior change by teaching the importance of healthy eating;
3. Implement nutrition standards that increase access to healthier foods and support a healthy eating environment; and
4. Promote meal and program efficiencies that will decrease food waste and lead to more sustainable meal programs.

Grantees will be announced in early April.



2015 Out-of-School Time Grants were Awarded to 80 Park and Recreation Agencies
