Action for Healthy Kids with partners, the Kellogg Company Fund, and the Walmart Foundation, has released its School Grants for Healthy Kids opportunities for the 2016-2017 school year. Grants will provide funding to continue efforts to increase breakfast participation through family engagement. Funded schools will receive expertise and people power to help implement a successful project that leads to sustainable change. Breakfast program promotional activities can include taste tests, nutrition education, family engagement during events, or other efforts to continue to grow or maintain participation.
Amount: Around 550 schools will be awarded funds ranging from $500 to $5,000 to support school breakfast programs. The grant size is typically $500 per school. Award amounts will be based on building enrollment, project type, potential impact, and a school’s ability to mobilize parents and students around school wellness initiatives.
Eligibility: Schools must participate in the National School Lunch Program and National School Breakfast Program; and must have a free/reduced priced meal eligibility greater than 60%.
