According to new analysis released by Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, ensuring low-income children have access to a healthy school breakfast has the potential to dramatically impact their academic, health, and economic futures. In honor of National School Breakfast Week (March 4 – 8), the No Kid Hungry campaign also released a new, interactive map that shows the potential benefits school breakfast could have on kids at the state and local levels across the nation and in Nebraska. Please join us at Fontenelle Elementary (3905 North 52nd Street, Omaha) on Wednesday, March 6th from 8:15 to 9:15 a.m. to see a Grab ‘n Go breakfast and to hear more about what is being done in the state of Nebraska to increase breakfast participation. You will also hear more about the study, “Ending Childhood Hunger: A Social Impact Analysis” that was developed by Share Our Strength in collaboration with Deloitte. This study analyzed third party studies and publicly available data and finds that federal programs like school breakfast are important in the fight to end childhood hunger. According to “Ending Childhood Hunger: A Social Impact Analysis,” school breakfast does more than provide children with essential daily nutrition. On average, students who eat school breakfast have been shown to achieve 17.5% higher scores on standardized math tests and attend 1.5 more days of school per year. Research also shows students who attend class more regularly are 20% more likely to graduate from high school, and high school graduates typically earn $10,090 more a year while enjoying a 4% higher employment rate.
