Action for Healthy Kids announces grant opportunities

Through partners such as Kellogg's and the Walmart Foundation, Action for Healthy Kids is pleased to release its School Grants for Healthy Kids opportunities for the
2012-13 school year. More than 500 schools nationwide will be awarded funds that will range from $1,000 to $5,000 with significant in-kind contributions from Action for Healthy Kids in the form of people, programs, and school nutrition expertise. We'll also provide schools with management expertise and support to develop strong nutrition programs around school breakfast, competitive foods, summer meals, access to healthy food and nutrition education.

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.  Schools must participate in the National School Lunch Program and National School Breakfast Program, and must have a free/reduced priced meal eligibility greater than 50 percent to be eligible.
