Millions of kids in America face the school day on an empty stomach because there isn't enough food at home. But hungry kids can't learn.
Help No Kid Hungry add one million kids to the school breakfast program.
By simply making breakfast a part of the school day, we can change everything.
All across the country, school disctricts are changing the way they serve breakfast.
Making breakfast part of the regular school day, just like lunch, has a powerful effect on kids.
Hungry kids have the food they need to excel in class. Studies show that grades and attendance rise when breakfast is served during the school day.
When everyone eats together, 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."
Getting to school extra early is a challenge for working families. Making breakfast part of the regular school day solves that problem.
