BreakfastFirst began as a three-year campaign initiated by California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA) to improve access, participation, and nutritional quality with respect to the federal School Breakfast Program. Following the success of the time-limited campaign, CFPA has expanded the umbrella of BreakfastFirst to include all of our work on school breakfast.
All students deserve the nourishment they need to learn, grown, and achieve at their full potential. Effective breakfast programs support successful students and successful schools. BreakfastFirst employs a strategic array of tactics — from data analysis to policy advocacy — to strengthen the School Breakfast Program. We hope you will join us in these efforts.
