Resources for Schools

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. Please see the links below for ideas to increase your school’s student breakfast participation.  For more information, please contact your county’s Child Nutrition Outreach Coordinator:

  • Chris West (Allegheny),
  • Mara Sawdy (Fayette, Greene, Washington),
  • Katie Daugherty (Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Lawrence),
  • Kelsey Gross (Indiana, Cambria, Somerset),
