Energize. Focus. Achieve.

Kids who eat breakfast at school do better on tests, attend class more often, and are more likely to graduate. Breakfast is a powerful anti-hunger tool, but unfortunately only about a third of children who are eligible for free school breakfasts take advantage of the program.

The November School Breakfast Challenge was created to increase breakfast participation in Oregon, and help schools achieve great results through school nutrition. This November 1st , we are kicking off the fourth annual November School Breakfast Challenge to support schools working to boost their breakfast participation!

Schools are encouraged to enroll to celebrate school breakfast, boost student participation, and win cash prizes! Schools will receive resources, support, engagement toolkits, and will receive shout outs across the state. Cash prizes for four winning schools include: $2,000, $1,500, $1,000 and $500.   

Grants for School Nutrition Programs are available for schools participating in the 2018 November School Breakfast Challenge. Funds are specifically targeted for educational and training opportunities to increase school meal participation. Please contact Fatima to learn more.

The Let’s Do Breakfast, Oregon! campaign is a collaboration of Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, Oregon Dairy and Nutrition Council, and Oregon Department of Education Child Nutrition Programs. The November School Breakfast Challenge and Let’s Do Breakfast, Oregon! are supported by national partners No Kid Hungry and the Hunger Is initiative offered by FRAC, Safeway Foundation, and Entertainment Industries Fund.

 

In 2017, 81 schools that participated in the challenge and achieved big results:

  • 10,775 kids ate breakfast each day in November
  • 14 percent increase from 2016, that’s over 1,300 more kids connected
  •  63 percent of schools boosted their breakfast numbers
