Because of donors like you who sponsor Breakfast in the Classroom, schools across the Valley are able to provide breakfast for their students. But, there are more children who still need your help.
The Importance of Breakfast
Breakfast, as the old adage goes, is the most important meal of the day. Starting school days on empty stomachs can make students more easily distracted and fare worse in class than counterparts who eat breakfast. Students who eat breakfast each day, on average, score more than 17 percent higher on math tests and are 20 percent more likely to graduate than students who don’t eat breakfast at all, studies show.
Breakfast in the Classroom addresses a factor holding back participation in other before school breakfast programs. Many students who are eligible for free or reduced-price school breakfast do not participate because of the inability to get transportation to the cafeteria for breakfast before school. Research shows that a Breakfast in the Classroom model is the single best way to increase participation and achieve the widespread gains in academic success linked to school breakfast consumption.
