Grants available to help schools implement innovative breakfast models

Posted: Aug 21, 2018

Innovative thinking at Kansas schools is helping students have better access to school breakfast. And now, thanks to a School Breakfast Leadership Grant from Share Our Strength, schools interested in implementing innovative breakfast delivery models during the 2018-2019 school year can apply for up to $5,000 per district.

Schools are taking breakfast out of the cafeteria and using different options to give students more of an opportunity to fuel up in the mornings. From serving breakfast in the classroom and offering grab-and-go options to having a second-chance option where students can eat first period, these innovations are helping increase the number of students participating in breakfast at school.

Grant funds can be used to purchase equipment and materials and to support initiatives that facilitate breakfast delivery this school year.

For application requirements; approved alternative breakfast delivery models; and application instructions, visit https://www.kn-eat.org/SNP/SNP_Docs/SNP_Whats_New/Breakfast_Grants_Announcement_Kansas_V2.pdf.

Applications are due by Sept. 30, 2018.
