WEST END ALEXANDRIA, VA. - From No Kid Hungry Virginia: No Kid Hungry Virginia is investing more than $27,000 to help jumpstart programs that bring breakfast into classrooms at middle and high schools across the state through its latest round of grants. The program – known nationwide as Breakfast After the Bell – increases access to school breakfast by bringing breakfast out of the cafeteria to make it a part of the school day.

Accessing traditional cafeteria breakfast service can be challenging for youth. Breakfast After the Bell provides breakfast in a way that is more convenient and accessible to students, resulting in increased student participation.

More than 300,000 children in Virginia live in families that struggle with hunger. Research shows that hunger has long-term ramifications on children, including lower test scores, weaker attendance rates, and a higher risk of hospitalizations and chronic diseases. No Kid Hungry Virginia and its partners focus on Breakfast After the Bell as a critical way to end childhood hunger in Virginia.
