Breakfast in the Classroom takes the traditional school breakfast approach and improves it by moving it to the classroom. Breakfast is available to every child, no matter the family’s income level, making it possible for all children to participate. Funded by the Walmart Foundation, Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom provides technical assistance and support to school districts to implement the program.
Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom, a consortium of national education and nutrition organizations, includes the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) Foundation, NEA Healthy Futures, and the School Nutrition Foundation (SNF).
Indiana partners include the Indiana State Department of Education, the Indiana State Teachers Association, the Indiana School Nutrition Association, the Indiana Association of School Principals, and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.
Since 2010, the Partners have helped 15 high-need school districts across the U.S. implement the Breakfast in the Classroom program resulting in more than 37,000 students starting their day with a healthy breakfast.
Starting in 2014, the Partners have been working to help schools in seven selected states implement Breakfast in the Classroom. The seven states include Virginia, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, and Kansas.
