Recently, the School Nutrition Foundation and the Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom hosted a Breakfast Summit. Hear from Houston County, a school district in Georgia that has had success both with a universal free model of breakfast in the classroom as well as counting and claiming model in some schools in the district. A special focus on how the district utilizes data to inform decisions and tell the breakfast story. Spoiler alert: breakfast participation leads to less tardiness, better attendance, and positive behavior outcomes.
