Schools can apply for $500 to $5,000 grants to create or expand school breakfast programs, pilot universal breakfast programs or enhance their physical activity programs from the nonprofit Action for Healthy Kids.

The application deadline for the 2014-2015 School Grants for Healthy Kids is May 2.

Action for Healthy Kids, created in 2002 in response to 16th U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher’s public call to action, is awarding the grants based on enrollment, project type, potential impact, and a school’s ability to mobilize parents and students around school wellness initiatives.

Action for Healthy Kids fights childhood obesity, undernourishment and physical inactivity by helping schools become healthier places so kids can live healthier lives.
