About Feed Your Brain

Since 2001, School’s Out Washington has worked in partnership with the Children’s Alliance, Discuren Charitable Foundation, and since 2010 Page Ahead, to address summer learning loss and summertime hunger through the Feed Your Brain project, which provides grants and training to schools, community-based organizations and/or tribes running summer programs in rural areas of Washington State. The overarching goal of Feed Your Brain is to increase the number of children who participate in academic and enrichment activities and receive at least two nutritious meals through the federally subsidized Summer Feeding Service Program.
