The mission of the Eos Foundation is to break the cycle of poverty by investing in children’s futures.

We support organizations and systemic solutions aimed at nourishing children’s bodies, nurturing their minds, and building family economic security.

MA School Breakfast Report Card Released

EndingHungerEos is proud to support Children’s HealthWatch, a research and advocacy organization, and their work on the first annual Massachusetts School Breakfast Report Card. The report highlights childhood hunger as a contributor to the achievement gap and calls for free after the bell school breakfast to be adopted across the state’s highest poverty schools (those with 60 percent or more of students qualifying for free or reduced price meals).
