School breakfast is a great way to ensure that kids come to class ready to succeed. Schools that increase student breakfast participation report increased attendance, higher grades, fewer student visits to the school nurse and better-behaved students.
We assist schools with increasing breakfast participation through sharing best practices, encouraging outreach and helping schools implement alternative service models and the Community Eligibility Option.
