School Breakfast Program
The School Breakfast Program is Funded By The Federal Government To Assist Schools And Other Agencies In Providing Healthful Breakfasts To Students

Studies indicate that students whose nutritional needs are met do better in school and have fewer attendance and discipline problems.
The school breakfast program is available to public and private non-profit schools as well as public and private licensed residential child care institutions including group homes, juvenile halls and orphanages.
