At an event at the State House on April 30th, 2015, the Eos Foundation was proud to recognize Brockton Public Schools and our partners from 11 districts and 53 schools across Massachusetts for their commitment to support universal free, after the bell, breakfast in the classroom (BIC) as a powerful tool to fight childhood hunger, and boost academic achievement in our high-need communities. For a full list of awarded schools please see Healthy Start Schools 2015.
The Eos Foundation issues the third Request for Proposals (RFP) for grants to schools and school districts to participate in our Nourishing Kids Initiative (NKI). Eos will provide grant funds to school districts and individual schools, district and charter, that initiate or expand universal free (UF), after-the-bell (ATB), breakfast in the classroom. For school year 2015-16, single-year grant awards up to $12,500 will be made to eligible schools; school districts will have the opportunity to apply for larger multi-year grants.
For this year’s grant application please see: Nourishing Kids Initiative, Breakfast in the Classroom Grant
As schools across the Commonwealth swing into full gear this month, Eos is proud to announce that our Nourishing Kids Initiative will award more than $200,000 in grants across eleven school districts in SY14-15. This funding will build upon last year’s success to improve, pilot, and expand programs to serve free breakfast to more than 7,500 additional students in the classroom, and after-the-bell. Newly funded districts this year include: Chicopee, Holyoke Community Charter School, Lawrence, Malden, Somerville, Taunton, and Webster.
