Participation in the Afterschool Snack Program (ASP) 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.
