School and Summer Meals
Balanced, nutritious meals offer immeasurable benefits:
- Increased attendance
- Improvements in behavior
- More student engagement
- Better diet and physical health
- Enhanced cognitive function
- Improved emotional health
- Decreased risk for obesity and diabetes
Second Harvest is working with school districts and other community partners to maximize the use of these programs, ensuring that students receive the food they need to fully engage in school and life. We help connect districts to federal dollars and best practices. Recognizing that school breakfast is seriously underutilized by many local families, we are advocating for breakfast models that work for families and kids.
Breakfast in the Classroom
Serve breakfast when and where all kids are able to eat.
Grab n’ Go Breakfast
Let kids grab quick and healthy meals on the way to class.
