USDA Awards $6.8 Million Through School Breakfast Program

March 7, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of its school breakfast initiative, the USDA announced grants of up to $6.8 million to support competitive Team Nutrition Training in schools and child care sites. The grants will help sustain the implementation of the healthier meals made possible by the bipartisan Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act of 2010. Participation in school breakfast programs has increased by almost 27 percent since the law was enacted. More than 14 million students eat school breakfasts each day. Grants awarded through the program are used to conduct and evaluate training, nutrition education, and technical assistance supporting USDA nutrition standards for snacks and meals, such as school breakfast.
