Washington ranks 41st out of 50 states in reaching low-income students with nutritious school breakfasts. Without a healthy breakfast, a student’s chance of success is drastically reduced.
The good news is there’s a solution: Breakfast After the Bell incorporates the most important meal into the school day – just like lunch!
Serving breakfast in the cafeteria before the school day starts presents many obstacles for kids and families. Bus and carpool schedules, social stigma, and peer pressure prevent kids from eating school breakfast at that time.
The Breakfast After the Bell Bill will remove these barriers and increase participation for kids who need it most.
