Grant Funding for Alternative Breakfast Programs

Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 9:22 am

The Western Dairy Council is offering start up grant funds for Alternative School Breakfast Programs (grab and go, breakfast in the classroom and breakfast after first period.)  The grants are tied to Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP60) so a school must be implementing FUTP60 to be eligible.  Schools in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana that have chosen "Bring on Breakfast" as their Healthy Eating Play as part of FUTP60 may apply to receive a Western Dairy Association Expanding Breakfast Grant of up to $2,000.  This grant is structured to assist schools in "expanding" their breakfast program beyond traditional before-school service in order to increase participation.  For a copy of the mini grant application, go to http://www.opi.mt.gov/pdf/SchoolFood/grants/11_12WDAExpandingBreakfastGrant.pdf
