Fueling Kids with Classroom Breakfasts
In communities across the country, 1 in 5 kids don’t get the food they need, and 3 out of 4 teachers say they have students who face hunger on a regular basis. Those educators also say that if the kids get a good breakfast, participation and achievement improve markedly.
At Kellogg, we are proud to support Share Our Strength and the No Kid Hungry initiative that helps schools with the wide range of costs associated with operating in-school breakfast programs. To feed kids, it turns out you need more than just food. Grants from the program help pay for everything from the staff needed for breakfast preparation to equipment such as coolers, serving carts and refrigerators.
It’s all about breaking down the barriers that keep kids from wholesome food and from achieving their full potential. We’re definitely open to that.
