School for Healthy Kids Issues RFP for School Breakfast Program Grants

Action for Healthy Kids works to combat childhood obesity, undernourishment, and physical inactivity by helping schools become healthier places that assist kids in leading healthier lives. The organization partners with dedicated volunteers — teachers, students, moms, dads, school-wellness experts, and others — from within the ranks of its more than sixty-thousand-strong network to create healthful changes in schools.

To that end, the organization has issued a Request for Proposals for its 2019-20 Breakfast for Healthy Kids and Game on Grants programs.

1) School Breakfast Grants: Up to two hundred and fifty schools will receive grant awards ranging between $500 and $3,000 to support increased participation in school-breakfast programs. Eligible schools may apply to pilot or expand a school-breakfast program, including alternative or universal alternative.

2) Game On Grants: Up to five hundred schools will be awarded grants in support of physical activity and nutrition initiatives needed for a school to become nationally recognized as a health-promoting school. Grant amounts will range between $500 and $1,000.

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

Action for Healthy Kids will begin accepting applications on February 4, 2019.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Action for Healthy Kids website.

Deadline: April 5, 2019
