got breakfast? Foundation Accepting Applications for School Breakfast Grant Program
Deadline: November 15, 2010

The got breakfast? Foundation, whose mission is to ensure that every child, regardless of background, starts the school day with a nutritious breakfast in order to learn, grow, and develop to his or her fullest potential, has announced its third round of Silent Hero Grants.

The Silent Hero program was created to encourage schools and nonprofit organizations to expand the reach of under-utilized child nutrition programs, most notably the National School Breakfast Program. The program recognizes, encourages, and rewards those silent heroes who help children start their day off right by serving breakfast. The program will award up to $50,000 in total grants to public schools, nonprofit private schools, and nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations participating in the National School Breakfast Program. Priority selection will be given to programs creating a breakfast program where one did not exist before.

Grants of up to $5,000 each will be awarded. Grant funds can be used for such needs as serving equipment, program staffing, and nutrition education materials.
