School Breakfast Program
What is it?
The School Breakfast Program is a federally funded program through the Food and Nutrition Service of the United States Department of Agriculture and administered by the Wisconsin
Department of Public Instruction. Established in 1975, the School Breakfast Program provides financial reimbursement to any enrolled school—public or private—for breakfasts served at school. Every breakfast served must include at least a fruit (or a vegetable), a whole grain-rich item and a non-fat or low-fat milk.
Why is it important?
The School Breakfast Program has become an integral part of many students’ school day. Every morning, more than 163,380 children in Wisconsin eat breakfast at school, 75% of whom
qualify for free or reduced price meals. This nutrition program provides children with the substantial nutrients they need to learn, grow and be healthy.
Who is eligible?
All students may participate in the School Breakfast Program once a school is enrolled. However, breakfast prices and reimbursement rates for each meal served vary depending
upon the student’s family income level.
