Implement Breakfast After The Bell District Wide
This petition made change with 165 supporters!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet there are children in Paterson starting their days hungry. More than 85% of students in Paterson are eligible for free/reduced breakfasts, but the district is only serving 30% of them. Too many of our children are going to school hungry. For some, breakfast at school on Monday will be their first nutritious meal in days. All of our children deserve a healthy start.
Research shows that children who miss breakfast have slower memory recall, make errors and are more likely to be either absent or tardy and to repeat a grade. Eating breakfast helps children perform better academically, reduces behavioral problems in class, and sets the stage for healthy eating in life. A healthy breakfast is a critical part of what Paterson children need from Paterson Schools in order to succeed.
