Meeting the School Breakfast Challenge

Join ACNJ for the release its 2nd annual school breakfast report, with new statistics spotlighting districts that are meeting the school breakfast challenge, as well as new statewide and local data.

Special Guests:

Newark Superintendent Cami Anderson
Newark Mayor Cory Booker
Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf
Agriculture Secretary Douglas Fisher
Invited, Governor Chris Christie

Meet the partners of The NJ Food for Thought School Breakfast Campaign, a statewide partnership that includes New Jersey’s major education groups, the state Departments of Agriculture, Education and Health, anti-hunger advocates and national partners.

New Jersey has long lagged behind the rest of the country in providing school breakfast to needy children.  But a growing number of New Jersey districts are changing the way they serve breakfast to reach more students, which improves student health, performance and behavior and leverages the considerable investment the state makes in public education. Join us!
