In partnership with Montana No Kid Hungry, Breakfast After the Bell grants to help combat childhood hunger

Governor Steve Bullock and First Lady Lisa Bullock today announced that a total $55,743 in private grant funding has been awarded to 14 Montana schools through an ongoing partnership with Montana No Kid Hungry. Grant funds allow schools to increase student participation in breakfast to ensure more children are receiving quality nutrition throughout the school day.

"Childhood hunger is a problem that we can solve and we are making progress," said Governor Bullock. "Hunger is a barrier that prevents students from excelling academically. We're all working together to remove this barrier so that students can thrive, now and in the future."

"I want to thank the schools that have taken the initiative to address the important issue of hunger so every student has the opportunity to be successful in the classroom," First Lady Bullock said. "Teachers, parents, and most importantly, the students all see the difference it makes when kids are able to focus in school rather than being distracted by an empty stomach." ... -school-day
