Norwalk Schools Receive $52K Grant To Expand Breakfast Program

By Norwalk Daily Voice

NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk Public Schools has been awarded a $52,000 grant from the American Association of School Administrators. The grant money will fund equipment needed to expand a “grab ‘n go” breakfast program piloted last year at Brookside Elementary School to a majority of schools across the district.

Norwalk Grows and FoodCorps provided Norwalk Public Schools with the opportunity to launch the Brookside breakfast pilot through a Share Our Strength/No Kid Hungry mini-grant. Instead of serving breakfast in the cafeteria, the grant helped pay for a cart filled with food that students could grab on their way into class in the morning.
