partners CSX Transportation, Kellogg Company, and the Kellogg’s Corporate
Citizenship Fund, (and more!) Action for Healthy Kids will award grants ranging
from $500 to $5,000 to support school breakfast and physical activity
programs. Funded schools will also receive expertise and people power to
help implement a successful project that leads to sustainable change.
Grants will support school breakfast
program pilot and/or expansion – to include alternative breakfast
programs (i.e., breakfast in the classroom, grab and go breakfast, breakfast
after 1st period, breakfast on the school bus) and universal
breakfast programs. Average grant size is $1,400 per school.
IMPACT: Schools must realize an increase in daily ADP of school breakfast
program by 25%, and must provide information to students/parents on nutrition
and caloric content of foods available. Schools must also join the
celebration during Every Kid Healthy
Week by hosting a family-friendly health-promoting event during
April 2015. Multiple schools within a district are encouraged to apply.
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 50% to be eligible. Priority selection will be given to
schools with student enrollment greater than 500 students.
