Did you know YOU can help secure funding for your schools by applying for grants?
Since 2009 Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) has provided $8.7 million in grants and technical support to help schools achieve their student wellness goals. Through April 5, 2019, schools and parents can apply for the following grants available for the 2019-2020 school year:
- Game On Grants – Secure funding and resources for your school to introduce or improve nutrition and physical activity programs. With a grant of $1,000 or more utilizing AFHK’s flagship program, Game On, you can build a school garden, jump-start active recess, purchase physical education equipment, host taste tests, kick-off an after-school activity club, and so much more.
- Parents for Healthy Kids Grants – Parents: Here’s your chance to make your mark on school health! Parents and parent-led groups (PTAs, PTOs) can apply for a $1,000 school grant to provide funds and resources to introduce or improve fitness or nutrition programs and engage families in health at school and at home. Help ensure all students have access to healthy choices.
- School Breakfast Grants – Expand access to school breakfast for hungry and undernourished kids. Grants from $1,000 to $3,000 can support equipment and other resources needed to implement or expand Breakfast in the Classroom, Grab-and-Go Breakfast, or other alternative breakfast programs that help students start their day right.
