Classroom Breakfast Program Seeks To Feed More Low-Income School Kids

September 7, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A small but growing national program known as “Breakfast in the Classroom” is trying to get more low-income schoolchildren to eat a healthy breakfast. Run by a coalition of organizations known as Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom, the program’s simple goal is to provide food for students after the morning bell has rung. Less than half of eligible low-income students take advantage of free or reduced-price USDA breakfasts. Getting meals in the classroom means that students don’t have to get to school early or skip breakfast in the rush to get to class. The program is operating in five school districts around the country and will be expanding to 10 this year, according to a CNN report.
