No Kid Hungry
In the richest state, in the richest country in the world, one in five kids still struggle with hunger. Compounding the problem, this hunger affects kids' ability to learn. The first meal of the day is especially critical. School breakfast fuels academic success. Yet, each day too many Maryland students miss out.
Kids who eat a healthy school breakfast do better in math, have higher attendance and are more likely to graduate. That's why it’s great to see schools across the state joining the Maryland Breakfast Challenge. The goal of the challenge, supported by the No Kid Hungry Campaign, Maryland State Department of Education and other partners, is to connect more students with breakfast. It also gives schools a chance to win cash and other prizes for their school.
Just last week, 19 school districts held Breakfast Challenge kick-off events and encouraged their schools to join.
Has your school joined yet?
If at least 750 schools enroll, we know that by pushing hard together we can connect over 10,000 more kids with a nutritious breakfast each day. You can find out more and encourage your school to enroll at MarylandBreakfastChallenge.org.
Children in Maryland need your continued support. Thank you for doing your part and helping to end childhood hunger in our state.
