For many Kentucky kids, school meals are the only meals they will eat throughout the day. Despite how important school meals are, we know that only 6 in 10 Kentucky kids who qualify for free and reduced meals are eating breakfast. We are asking the legislature to allow 15 minutes of instructional time to be use for students to consume school breakfast in the class room, which would encourage teachers to set aside time for kids to eat breakfast in the classroom. This ensures that all Kentucky kids have access to at least two meals a day.
Help ensure Kentucky kids have access to school breakfast by sharing our one pager with your legislator and voicing your support for school breakfast as instructional time.
