Today, too many kids know what it’s like to open their textbooks with an empty stomach. Studies confirm that when a hungry child eats breakfast, they have better attendance, improve in math, and are more likely to graduate from high school. No Kid Hungry works with schools across the country to make sure every child starts the day with a healthy breakfast.
School breakfast changes lives! According to a study by Deloitte, kids who eat breakfast at school miss less school, do better in math, and are more likely to graduate from high school. Kids who graduate from high school make up to $11,000 more per year in salary and are more likely to attain higher education!
School breakfast is traditionally served in the cafeteria early in the morning. Often, breakfast is served before the busses even arrive. And, sadly, kids who eat breakfast at school are often stigmatized as being poor. The result is fewer kids eating breakfast at school and A LOT of lost opportunity.
