It's no secret that food is a basic human necessity. All people on Earth need to eat to survive. Especially students, who need to fuel their developing minds. Without food, science has proven that hungry students perform worse in school. 1 in 6 students report coming to school hungry every day, according to neatoday.org. In our school, this would make up nearly 670 students coming to school hungry every day. By making students pay for their breakfasts, schools are denying students of this right. If a student is unable to bring a cold lunch in the morning, they should not be punished for it. School breakfast should be made free for all.

By making school breakfasts free, it would ensure no student goes hungry at any point in time. Not only would this decrease the amount of hungry students at school, but it would increase the performance of some students. In order to give students the best shot at success they can get, we should offer free breakfast.

If the district does not enact this change, students will continue to be hungry at the start of the day, performing worse than what they could achieve, which could be detrimental to their success. This is why free breakfast should be offered in school.
