The School Breakfast Leadership Institute brings together national, state and local experts who have made expanding school breakfast a priority. The institute provides a unique opportunity for selected state teams to engage in constructive conversation about how we can implement new and better ways to connect kids with school breakfast. State teams are comprised of stakeholders who can influence school breakfast practice and policy in their state, including gubernatorial staff, state education agency staff, state and local school nutrition directors, state and local superintendents, non-profit partners, school board members and education association representatives.

A request for proposals for the 2019 School Breakfast Leadership Institute will be released on January 23, 2019. Proposals will be due March 6, 2019. Participating state teams will receive a $50,000 grant to implement a comprehensive action plan to expand access to school breakfast within their state. State teams also receive ongoing technical assistance and support from No Kid Hungry around implementation, data analysis, policy and communications. No Kid Hungry will accept one proposal per state.

States that participated in the 2018 School Breakfast Leadership Institute (HI, KS, MI, NY, NC, SC) are not eligible to apply. Proposals must be submitted by the governor’s office, state education agency or state agency that administers the School Breakfast Program. Additional information will be available in the request for proposals.

Stay tuned for the release of our 'Request for Proposals' - January, 23, 2019!
