Action for Healthy Kids provides School Breakfast Grants to increase school breakfast participation by implementing alternative breakfast models like Breakfast in the Classroom, Grab and Go or other innovative models through grant awards ranging from $1,000-$3,000.
Eos provides one-time grant awards up to $10,000 to eligible Massachusetts schools/districts and charter public schools eager to make breakfast part of their school day by launching or expanding ATB BIC programming.
New England Dairy & Food Council is offering Fuel Up to Play 60 grants. Schools can apply for up to $4,000 for healthy eating and physical activity improvements. Grants open to all schools.
This grant provides for the installation of salad bars in school cafeterias. Salad bars are one of the best ways to make vegetables appeal to kids because they allow students to customize their meal. The "Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools" Grant is approximately $2,995 and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Chef Ann Foundation's Get Schools Cooking program is for school districts that want to transition their food service programs from heat and serve foods to scratch-cooked foods. Through the program, school districts are guided through a two-year process to help them make the switch, and have the opportunity to apply for a $50,000 grant.
