Benefits for Your School - Breakfast & the Bottom Line

There are fiscal benefits to operating an effective school breakfast program.  School districts that maximize school breakfast participation, decreases absenteeism, and reduce tardiness with effective breakfast models can:

  • Improve average daily attendance (ADA) and increase related funding.
  • Maximize state and federal meal reimbursements.
  • Increase "indirect cost" allocations to the district's general fund.

Each of these outcomes helps support overall district budgets and fiscally-sound school nutrition programs that enhance student health and achievement.
