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. In November 2018, we are kicked off the fourth annual November School Breakfast Challenge to support schools working to boost their breakfast participation!

Join us in celebrating the 2018 winning schools! We greatly appreciate all the participating schools’ time and dedication; from sending home extra parent materials, to adding new items, to even changing where and when they served breakfast–everyone went the extra mile to reach more kids!
