Child Nutrition Programs (CNP) help to ensure the children of Utah have adequate access to safe and nutritious foods. Meeting this basic need is essential to their establishment of a healthy eating pattern and development of a strong foundation for academic achievement.
CNP administers 14 federal food programs and sub programs, which are appropriated under United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). The federal food programs are primarily designed to ensure sponsors have the necessary knowledge and resources to enable them to provide children and chronically disabled adults access to safe and healthy foods.
The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) is an equal opportunity provider.
