Every Child Deserves a Healthy Start to the School Day

Donate

School meals help kids learn, grow, and thrive.

Every student, classroom, teacher, and community is better off when kids start the school day well-nourished and ready to learn.

Kids who eat breakfast at school do better on tests, attend class more often, and are more likely to graduate.

Yet, far too many students miss out on eating a healthy school breakfast or lunch because of the cost.

Let’s make Oregon the first state in the nation to offer healthy, tasty school meals to all children who need them at no charge – helping every student learn, grow, and succeed in life. Tell your legislators you support Hunger-Free Schools in Oregon.

Universal Access to School Meals in Oregon

The Hunger-Free Schools Campaign is advocating for the Oregon Legislature to pass a bill that will offer all students that need it the opportunity to eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch at no charge.

Currently, 4 in 10 school districts in Oregon already serve meals at no charge in at least one school. These 331 schools, designated high-poverty, use the Community Eligibility Provision from the federal government to fund meals at no cost to all students.

Let’s take this solution to scale and ensure 100,000 more Oregon kids can access healthy school meals at no charge.

School meals help every student learn, grow, and succeed. The Hunger-Free Schools Coalition is advocating to pass a bill that will offer students at risk of hunger the opportunity to eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch at no charge through Universal School Meals in Oregon.

Working with our partners and allies, we believe we can make Oregon the first state in the nation to serve universal meals at every public school. To succeed, we need your help.
