Join us in expanding school breakfast across New Jersey.

On Sept. 28, ACNJ will release a report that shows how school districts across the state can give children a nutritional start to the school day with a healthy school breakfast. New Jersey lags the nation in providing breakfast to disadvantaged students.

NJ Department of Children and Families Commissioner Allison Blake will join ACNJ in calling on school districts to take creative steps to give children school breakfast. ACNJ will also release data showing participation rates in districts around the state and targeting schools with high concentrations of children in low-income families.
