School for Healthy Kids Issues RFP for School Breakfast Program Grants

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

To that end, the organization has issued a Request for Proposals for its 2016-17 Breakfast for Healthy Kids and Game on Grants programs.

1) School Breakfast Grants: Up to five hundred and fifty schools will receive grant awards ranging from $500 to $5,000 in support of their efforts to increase participation in their breakfast programs. Eligible schools may apply to pilot or expand their school breakfast programs, including alternative or universal alternative.

2) Game On Grants: Up to five hundred schools will be awarded grants for physical activity and nutrition initiatives that support schools in becoming nationally recognized as a health-promoting school. Grants will range from $500 to $2,500.

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

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