Announcements: SCCPSS Ranks High on Annual School Breakfast Participation Scorecard

Title

SCCPSS Ranks High on Annual School Breakfast Participation Scorecard 

Body

The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System is one of the highest performing school districts in FRAC’s annual report, School Breakfast: Making it Work in Large School Districts for the 2015-2016 school year, which will be released Tuesday, February 14, 2017. This report examines School Breakfast Program participation rates and trends in 73 of America’s largest school districts. These districts saw a net increase of 101,548 students eating school breakfast in 2015–2016 school year, compared to the prior school year.

The national School Breakfast Program makes it possible for all school children in the U.S. to receive a nutritious breakfast every school day. School breakfast participation nationally has been growing, and several strategies exist to increase it further, including the use of "breakfast after the bell" models such as breakfast in the classroom, "grab and go," and second chance breakfast.

SCCPSS was one of 26 districts in the country who met FRAC's (Food Research & Action Center) goal of reaching 70 low-income children with school breakfast for every 100 receiving school lunch.
