Fifteen scholarships have been awarded from the National CACFP Sponsors Association (NCA) for the 2022 National Child Nutrition Conference. Through the scholarship program, NCA is honored to recognize the professionals who are dedicated to ensuring that our nation's most vulnerable populations have access to nutritious food. Each scholarship includes conference registration, four (4) nights' lodging at the conference hotel, and up to $300.00 toward transportation costs totaling over $20,000.00.

For 36 years the National Child Nutrition Conference for CACFP, Afterschool, and Summer Meals child nutrition programs has offered unparalleled training, education, and networking opportunities for the child nutrition community. Attendees will be able to choose from over 100 workshops and training programs, network with colleagues from across the country, participate in roundtable discussions with colleagues from their region, and be able to visit with exhibitors to learn about products, services, and resources available to assist their work in the CACFP. This year the annual conference will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana April 18 – 22, 2022.
