A Fresh Approach to Education

Available Scholarships


We’ve seen an incredible response to our offer of free School Food Institute seats to support districts throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we reached capacity very quickly.

If you or your staff are interested in future free SFI seats, please register for our waitlist. As our staff has more bandwidth and capacity, we will try to provide more sponsorship seats. We will reach out directly to the waitlist registrants when scholarship seats become available, hopefully in the next 2-8 months. 

If you’d like to explore SFI courses now, you are always welcome to purchase a course or certificate via our Course Catalog.
