General Mills Foodservice joins forces with National Dairy Council® as the 2014 Breakfast Sponsor, supporting grants to expand school breakfast. Addressing the important role the breakfast meal plays in providing nutrient-rich foods and beverages to students, these grants are designed to increase student participation by serving breakfast outside the cafeteria in creative ways.
Schools may apply for a grant to start a new breakfast program or improve an existing one. Whether it is breakfast in the classroom, grab ’n’ go breakfast, second chance breakfast after first class period, or expanding breakfast offerings to include dairy options such as yogurt to serve breakfast to more students, the kids and your program will benefit.
