Every Child Deserves a Healthy Start to the School Day


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 at no charge–helping every student learn, grow, and succeed in life. Read more about what led us to this priority.

Universal School Meals in Oregon

The Hunger-Free Schools Campaign is advocating for the Oregon Legislature to pass a bill that will offer all students 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.
