School Breakfast

The School Breakfast Program (SBP) provides cash assistance to States to operate nonprofit breakfast programs in schools and residential childcare institutions. The program is administered at the federal level by the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service. State education agencies administer the SBP at the state level, and local school food authorities operate it in schools. The School Breakfast and School Lunch programs are a part of the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act, scheduled for reauthorization in September 2010. See the Food Research and Access Center for more information on the act and what you can do to improve funding for these programs.
