School Breakfast Program
Studies consistently show that eating a nutritional breakfast is associated with improved academic performance, behavior, attentiveness, and overall health. The School Breakfast Program (SBP) aids schools to provide children with an energy-packed meal every day. Functioning in the same manner as the National School Lunch Program, the Federal Government provides reimbursements to schools for meals that comply with the USDA’s nutritional standards. Free or reduced-price breakfast is available to eligible children so all children have the opportunity to thrive in the classroom.

Summer Food Service Program
During the school year, nutritious meals are available to students through the NSLP and SBP; however these programs stop with the end of the school year. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federal program made available to eligible areas to ensure that children receive nutritious meals throughout the year. This program merges summer activity programs with a federal meal reimbursement program. The Summer Meal Program provides free meals to kids 18 years and younger in many locations across the country regardless of income, race, sex, religion, or nationality.
