School Breakfast Program
Studies consistently show that eating a nutritional breakfast is associated with improved academic performance, behavior, attentiveness, and overall health. The School Breakfast Program (SBP) aids schools to provide children with an energy-packed meal every day. Functioning in the same manner as the National School Lunch Program, the Federal Government provides reimbursements to schools for meals that comply with the USDA’s nutritional standards. Free or reduced-price breakfast is available to eligible children so all children have the opportunity to thrive in the classroom.
