NEW YORK CITY

MARYLAND

LOS ANGELES

Thanks to the volunteers, donors and community leaders of Team No Kid Hungry, New York City has agreed to make breakfast part of the school day for kids at every elementary school in the city - 340,000 children in all.

This year, almost a thousand schools participated in the "Maryland Breakfast Challenge", giving more than 10,000 kids a healthy start to their school days.

Because of the hard work of Team No Kid Hungry, every single student in Los Angeles public schools starts their day with a healthy breakfast, served as part of the regular school day.

Why Breakfast Works

Some schools have figured out a better way, one that works. Making breakfast part of the regular school day, just like lunch, has a powerful effect on kids.

Here's why it works:

NO ONE IS SINGLED OUT

When everyone eats together, teachers report, it creates a feeling of community in the classroom, and kids who need that morning meal no longer feel singled out as the "poor kids."

It's easier for families

Parents say that it's tough to get kids to school early every morning. Making breakfast part of the regular school day solves that problem.

America's Kids Need You

Let's make breakfast part of the school day in EVERY community.

Hunger in Our Schools
