It’s time to kick off National School Breakfast week! Let’s score big and help celebrate the most important meal of the day as we raise a glass in thanks to all the hard working school nutrition heroes. We all need to understand that missing meals and experiencing hunger impairs a child’s development and academic achievement. Hungry children are unable to focus in school, threatening educational success.
The Arizona School Breakfast Coalition works to increase access to school breakfast meals around the state. Dairy Council® of Arizona, Association of Arizona Food Banks, Arizona Department of Education and Valley of the Sun United Way have partnered together to provide funding and develop tools and resources for schools interested in expanding their breakfast programs and increasing participation.
