School Breakfast Grants
Nearly 250 schools across the country will receive grant awards of $2,000 or $3,000 to support increased breakfast participation with new alternative breakfast programs, including breakfast in the classroom or grab and go. Award amounts will be determined based on a school’s ability to provide breakfast at no charge for all students. To be eligible for the Start Up grant funding, schools must participate in the National School Breakfast Program and have a free and reduced percentage of 40% or greater. Schools previously funded for breakfast efforts will be invited to apply for Sustainability/Expansion grants of $1000.
