Success Story

School Breakfast: Making it Work in Large School Districts
With help from a grant from FRAC and Newman’s Own Foundation, Reading School District launched breakfast in the classroom in 13 elementary schools during the 2014–2015 school year. Breakfast in the classroom not only increased accessibility to school breakfast, but it also solved the limited cafeteria space issues that the district faced. Building on this success for school year 2015–2016, the school district continues its work to boost breakfast participation by implementing breakfast in the classroom in four additional middle schools. To date, breakfast participation on an average day in Reading School District has more than quadrupled, growing from 530 students to 2230 students.
