In a nation as rich as ours, no kid should go without food. But the good news is, we have a solution.
Effective programs already exist that can reach every school-aged child. When you make breakfast part of the regular school day—served to kids in class or from grab-and-go kiosks—you can reach a lot more kids. Studies show that children from low-income families who eat school breakfast are significantly more likely to do well on tests and miss less school.
We have to start somewhere. Contact your governor right now and tell them to give kids a healthy start by making breakfast after the bell a reality.
