Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) has released their annual School Breakfast Scorecard, which found an increase in participation of 3.7 percent, or nearly 433,000 children from the previous school year.
Key Highlights from the report:
- The top two performers in the Scorecard — West Virginia and New Mexico — exceeded FRAC’s goal of reaching 70 low-income children with school breakfast for every 100 who ate school lunch. In contrast, Utah and New Hampshire each served breakfast to fewer than 41 free or reduced-price eligible students for every 100 who participated in school lunch.
- They also released School Breakfast: Making it Work in Large School Districts, a companion report that looks at the 73 largest school districts.
