NECSD BREAKFAST PROGRAM FEATURED IN ANNUAL STATEWIDE REPORT
Hunger Solutions New York has released its annual statewide report, Bridging the Gap: Ending Student Hunger with Breakfast After the Bell. The report analyzes state- and district-level participation in the School Breakfast Program in New York State public schools during the 2016-2017 school year. Our district was featured in the report.
The School Breakfast Program plays a critical role in reducing child hunger, bolstering student success and improving health. However, the program continues to be underutilized across New York State.
This publication is a valuable resource for child health and education advocates, school system leaders at the state and local level, elected officials, and community partners. Specific action steps are outlined to help increase participation in school breakfast. Leaders should consider the recommendations detailed in this report to remove barriers to school breakfast.
