Talk to local schools
Contact your school’s administrators (or nutritionist if there is one) and see what breakfast programs are already in place. You can also refer them to the Food Research and Action Center or Action for Healthy Kids for more information and resources on school breakfast programs. Beginning a conversation is the first step in seeing results.
