Four Schools Get "Got Breakfast" Aid

Representatives of the Got Breakfast Foundation and Share Our Strength at the launch of the Got Breakfast Playbook.


The "got breakfast?" Foundation and the Share Our Strength antihunger organization are providing "got breakfast?" grants to four school districts to help them implement the Classroom Breakfast method of serving meals to students. The grants are the first of a series available to schools nationwide interested in implementing Classroom Breakfast.

In addition, the Foundation is releasing the Classroom Breakfast Playbook, an informational survey and manual that summarizes studies regarding the link between eating breakfast and higher test scores, as well as how the Classroom Breakfast program can boost school breakfast participation (for a PDF download of the document, go to www.gotbreakfast.org [3] and click on the "School Breakfast" banner at the top). The "got breakfast?"

grants totaling $35,000 will be awarded to Balboa High School in San Francisco, Langley Park McCormick Elementary School in Prince George's County, MD, Friendship Public Charter Schools in Washington, DC and an additional school to be announced shortly.
