HOST Members Celebrate National School Breakfast Week
It's National School Breakfast Week, and several HOST members are sharing information, ideas, and success stories.
- The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) gives us a number of resources to help promote local participation in the week, including sample talking points, social media posts, and a press release, along with an infographic about the benefits of breakfast in the classroom.
- FRAC has also released its latest School Breakfast Scorecard, which analyzes nationwide and state-by-state participation in the School Breakfast Program for the 2016-2017 school year. The report includes best practices for increasing participation in the program.
- Action for Healthy Kids offers a number of tips, resources, and ways to take action in observance of the week (and beyond).
