NJ Achieves 75 Percent Jump in School Breakfast

A growing number of New Jersey schools are serving breakfast during the first few minutes of the day and, as a result, have achieved a 75 percent increase in the number of low-income students eating this all-important morning meal, according to the 5th Annual NJ School Breakfast Report, released in October by Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) and the NJ Food for Thought Campaign.

From large urban districts like Paterson to small rural districts like Woodbine, school leaders are making the simple change to serving breakfast during the first few minutes of the school day, ensuring that their students have the nutrition they need to focus and learn and claiming millions more in federal dollars to feed hungry students.

If your district hasn’t made the switch yet, please check out the NJ Food for Thought implementation tools webpage for resources that can help you meet the logistical challenges of serving breakfast after the bell. You’ll be glad you did.

Find out how your district is doing!
