According to analysis released by Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, the simple act of feeding kids a healthy school breakfast can have a dramatic impact on their academic, health and economic futures.
“Ending Childhood Hunger: A Social Impact Analysis,” a report conducted by Deloitte and the No Kid Hungry Center for Best Practices, finds federal programs like school breakfast are important in the fight to end childhood hunger. Deloitte analyzed third party studies and publicly available data to develop several frameworks connecting outcomes from the School Breakfast Program with long-term benefits. This analysis showed there are dramatic potential impacts associated with the simple act of feeding kids a healthy school breakfast, including positive,
large-scale outcomes in education, economics and health.
The No Kid Hungry campaign works to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program. Reaching more students who are at risk of hunger improves their chances of leading healthy lives, achieving higher academic
performance and avoiding food insecurity in adulthood.
