Announcing the 2016 Feed Your Brain Participants

by School's Out Washington | | Posted under School's Out News

We are excited to announce the 10 programs receiving funding for Feed Your Brain 2016.  While funding 10 programs, we are impacting 16 communities. This is an exciting expansion of the summer meals and summer learning made possible through Feed Your Brain.

Programs funded this year are:

With recruitment at all programs geared toward children needing the summer learning support,  preliminary numbers show summer meals and summer learning reaching close to 1,000 children this summer. Each year, these children return to school maintaining their end of school year level or moving beyond it.

Our annual Feed Your Brain grant addresses summer learning loss and summertime hunger by funding summer learning programs in rural Washington State. Feed Your Brain sites participate in the Summer Food Service Program, providing children with meals they might not otherwise have had, and also give kids access to books and literacy activities. Since 2001, Feed Your Brain has supported more than 190 summer literacy programs, which have served more than 400,000 meals and benefited approximately 20,000 children.

We were able to award these 10 grants thanks to our generous funders:
