School Breakfast

Every Kid Deserves a Healthy Breakfast

In the United States today, millions of kids start the school day on an empty stomach. It's hard for them to focus and learn. Hunger hurts their grades, their health and their happiness. 

But we believe that every child in America deserves a future filled with possibilities.

Luckily, there is a solution.

Schools across the country have started making breakfast part of the school day, just like lunch. That means a lot more hungry kids get to eat.

That’s where No Kid Hungry comes in. We give educators and lawmakers across the country the guidance and funding they need to make breakfast a part of the regular school day for their students. 

Here's a short video showing how it works at a school in Florida:

In the 2018-19 school year alone, we helped feed hungry kids an additional 11.5 million nutritious breakfasts in schools across America – from big cities to rural communities and everywhere in between.

That takes a lot of work:

- providing grants and assistance to schools
- urging elected officials and policymakers to adopt more effective programs
- making sure everyone in America understands this problem; and how simple and powerful the solution is

Your support makes that work possible. Please help America's children get the healthy start they need, each and every day.
