January 2015

Happy New Year! As 2015 gets underway, we hope you will put breakfast at the top of your resolutions. If you have not yet joined the growing number of New Jersey districts offering breakfast after the bell, which significantly boosts student participation in this critical child nutrition program, please take a look at these resources to help you get started. Breakfast after the bell is do-able – and benefits the entire school community, while bringing more federal dollars into your district.

The USDA provides a comprehensive toolkit that will answer all your questions about implementing breakfast after the bell.
