Out-of-School Time Programs

Walmart Foundation Logo 250

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 with the support of the Walmart foundation has funded 85 local 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.

2016 Out-of-School Time Grants were Awarded to 85 Park and Recreation Agencies
