October 2015

What do footballs and breakfast have in common?

They will both be featured at the 5th annual release of the NJ Food for Thought School Breakfast Report on Oct. 15 at 9:30 a.m. at the Fred W. Martin School (Martin Center for the Arts), 59 Wilkinson Avenue, Jersey City.

Please register today. Space is limited.

Advocates for Children of New Jersey will present the findings of the 5th annual report, which documents continued progress in school breakfast expansion in New Jersey. Data will be released for all districts that have breakfast programs.

ACNJ will be joined by school, city, state and federal leaders, as well as the NJ Food For Thought Coalition, to celebrate New Jersey’s success on the school breakfast front – and focus our attention on what we need to do to ensure that all children begin their school day with a healthy meal. As an extra bonus -- We’ll hear from a Giants player (guess which one?) and watch a pep rally with the kids.

So please join us for this free event. Register online now.

Upcoming Webinars

FRAC’s Breakfast Matters: School Board Champions for School Breakfast Expansion
Thursday, October 8, 2015 from  3 to 4 p.m. | Register here
School board members across the country have played an important role in bringing breakfast in the classroom and other alternative service models to their school district. As champions for the program, school board members can provide invaluable leadership to ensure the success and sustainability of the program. This webinar will highlight action steps school board members can take to support school breakfast expansion. We also will discuss how state school board associations can engage with local school board members, school officials, advocates and parents to bring breakfast in the classroom to more districts in your state.

Serving Meals on Weekends and During School Holidays

Thursday, October 15, 2015 from 1 to 2 p.m. | Register here
Serving holiday and weekend meals ensures access to nutritious meals for the children attending your program during the week and greatly increases the number of meals you can claim for reimbursement. Join us to learn more about what it would mean for your afterschool program to extend its service into weekends and over school holidays.

The Food for Thought School Breakfast Campaign is a partnership of state agencies, child advocates, anti-hunger coalitions, statewide education organizations and national organizations.
