Why School Breakfast?

Students who participate in school breakfast show improved attendance, behavior, and standardized achievement test scores, as well as decreased tardiness. Learn more.


AASA and Alternative School Breakfast

With funding from the Walmart Foundation, AASA works with member-districts to increase school breakfast participation using alternative breakfast strategies, like Breakfast in the Classroom. The main goal of the initiative is to increase the number of low-income students who eat breakfast in these districts.

In 2015, AASA funded 11 new districts to be part of a Community of Practice. They join the 17 districts funded between 2011-2014.
