NJ Districts Taking the Challenge

Sixty-two New Jersey districts have registered to take the NJ School Breakfast Challenge. View a list of districts. Thanks to all who signed up. We appreciate your commitment to giving students a healthy meal at the start of their school day. Winners will be announced next summer. As you roll-out your new breakfast models, the NJ Food for Thought Campaign will provide regular updates with resources and other assistance that can help you win the challenge!

Learn how principals are ending child hunger

On Nov. 14 at 3 p.m., the Food Research Action Center will host a webinar in its ongoing series focused on school breakfast implementation. Hear from principals who are seeing concrete results from serving more students school breakfast. You’ll learn how principals and school building staff around the country are ending classroom hunger, improving academic performance and transforming school environments through the implementation of alternative breakfast models.
