The 2014 Pennsylvania School Breakfast Challenge aims to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program to ensure all students start their day off right.
The Department of Education, local businesses and anti-hunger organizations across the state are working together to launch the first-ever School Breakfast Challenge in Pennsylvania. Gov. Tom Corbett and First Lady Susan Corbett are co-chairs of this initiative
Schools that participate in the Pennsylvania School Breakfast Challenge can receive technical assistance and equipment to improve their breakfast programs. The goal of the Challenge is for each registered school to increase student participation by at least 30 percent.
Schools that achieve the largest gains in breakfast participation will receive awards—cash and other prizes when the Challenge ends in the spring of 2014
