Action for Healthy Kids combats childhood obesity, undernourishment, and physical inactivity by helping schools become healthier places so that 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 2018-19 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 from $500 to $3,000 to support increased participation in school breakfast programs. Eligible schools may apply to pilot or expand their 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 their efforts to become nationally recognized as a health-promoting school. Grant awards will range between $500 and $1,000.
Award amounts will be based on building enrollment, project type, potential impact, and a school’s ability to mobilize parents and students around school wellness initiatives.
