Giving back with Box Tops for Education

For over 25 years, the Box Tops for Education program has given families an easy way to earn cash for schools — with products they already buy. Enrolled K-12 schools earn cash when families use the Box Tops app to scan purchase receipts of participating products.


Box Tops Equipment Sweepstakes

Each day K-12 nutrition teams go above and beyond to feed students in their school communities, despite facing continued headwinds from ongoing issues like labor shortages and inflation. On top of everything, many teams find themselves without important equipment and tools their need. So General Mills and Box Tops For Education teamed up to give school feeding programs the chance to win key equipment necessary to keep students well-fed and ready to learn. We awarded more than $100,000 in foodservice equipment to schools, including breakfast carts, snack/cereal racks and smoothie kits to help school nutrition programs nationwide.
