Action for Healthy Kids Issues RFP for School Breakfast and Physical Activity Grants

Action for Healthy Kids works to combat childhood obesity, undernourishment, and physical inactivity by helping schools become healthier places where kids can live healthier lives. To that end, the organization partners with  dedicated volunteers — teachers, students, parents, school wellness experts, and more — from within the ranks of its more than sixty-thousand-strong network to create healthful school changes.

The organization has issued a Request for Proposals for its 2014-15 School Grants for Healthy Kids program. The program will award grants of up to $5,000 to a thousand schools in support of school breakfast and physical activity programs. Funded schools will also receive expertise and consulting services to help them implement a successful project that leads to sustainable change.

Award amounts will be based on school enrollment, project type, potential impact, as well as a school’s ability to mobilize parents and students around school-wellness initiatives.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, visit the Action for Healthy Kids Web site.
