Students do better when they start the day with a nutritious breakfast. Making breakfast a seamless part of the day with Breakfast After the Bell models can also have a huge impact on classrooms and schools.
Every time we feed a student school breakfast, we’re supporting their ability to achieve their future goals.
Rise & Shine Illinois is pleased to offer School Breakfast Grants in partnership with Share Our Strength and the No Kid Hungry campaign. The Rise & Shine Illinois School Breakfast Grants will support schools with the purchase of approved equipment, supplies, or materials and initiatives facilitating Breakfast After the Bell delivery models (Breakfast in the Classroom, Grab ‘N’ Go, or Second Chance Breakfast) in an effort to increase student participation in school breakfast. Individuals may request a maximum of $5,000 per individual schools. Visit riseandshineillinois.org for more information.
