The Food Research & Action Center (FRAC) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) have published a new free guide, “Breakfast Blueprint: Breakfast After the Bell Programs Support Learning.”
The “Breakfast Blueprint” is a guide focused on breakfast after the bell programs–such as breakfast in the classroom, “grab and go” breakfast and second chance breakfast–because they are increasingly popular, are well-researched and have successfully helped schools and districts improve students’ access to nutritious foods. These innovative models shift breakfast service from before the school bell to after, making morning meals available to more students. Combined with providing breakfast at no cost to all students regardless of income, breakfast after the bell eliminates stigma and increases convenience for students.
