Healthy Breakfast 4 Kids grant opportunity!!
The Healthy Breakfast-4-Kids (HB4K) goal is to create and improve access to breakfast in schools nationwide as a means to lessen the huge negative impact of hungry children across our nation. In 2012 Food Family Farming Foundation (F3) and Walmart Foundation are partnering to grant 117 $2500 equipment grants to rural high needs schools for the purpose of assisting in the successful establishment of universal breakfast in the classroom programs. The grants will allow schools to order $2500 worth of food service smallwares or equipment to assist in establishing a universal breakfast program via an online order with our partner Tundra Specialties. As part of the grant program, F3 will create universal breakfast implementation resources to be available to all schools via our program, The Lunch Box. http://www.foodfamilyfarming.org/html/grants.html
