Afterschool Snack Program (ASP)

Overview

Participation in the Afterschool Snack Program is an option to sponsors already participating in National School Lunch Program (NSLP) that offers reimbursement to help sponsors serve snacks to children in afterschool activities aimed at promoting the health and well-being of children and youth in our communities. A school must provide children with regularly scheduled activities in an organized, structured, and supervised environment; and include educational or enrichment activities (e.g., mentoring or tutoring programs). The programs must meet state/local licensing requirements, if applicable, or state/local health and safety standards.

Qualifying/Applying

The NSLP ASP offers reimbursement to help School Food Authorities (SFAs) provide a nutritional boost to children enrolled in after school activities.

In order for a site to participate, a school district must operate the NSLP and offer an afterschool enrichment program. Afterschool programs must provide children with regularly scheduled educational or enrichment activities in a supervised environment. Both Area Eligible and non-Area Eligible sites can participate in the school-based ASP.  School sites that are not area eligible receive reimbursement at different rates based on a child’s free and reduced-price status. If an applicant’s eligibility status is not on file, the household must submit a free and reduced-price application to become eligible for free or reduced-price after school snacks. If the site is Area Eligible, all children receive a snack at no charge and the sponsor receives the free reimbursement rate for all snacks served.
