Join Us!

On Oct. 7 at 9:30 a.m., Advocates for Children of New Jersey will release Food for Thought: 4th Annual New Jersey School Breakfast Report, along with the latest local data tracking the number of students  eating breakfast at school across the state.

The event will be held at The Lafayette School, 50 W. High Street, Bound Brook -- first place winner of the NJ School Breakfast Challenge among North Jersey districts. The five other challenge winners -- East Newark, New Brunswick, Quinton, Folsom and Trenton -- will also be recognized, as well as other school breakfast champs, including Jersey City, Union City, Camden, Egg Harbor City, among others. And, there will be a special guest appearance by former Giants player Amani Toomer, courtesy of the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council.

Register today for this free event.

Many districts are switching to serving “breakfast after the bell,” resulting in a statewide increase in student participation in this critical child nutrition program. At the report release, you’ll find out how kids in your district are faring and how districts are achieving this great result for kids.

As more New Jersey kids live in families earning too little to meet their needs, providing school breakfast gives students the fuel they need to concentrate and learn. Come learn how easy it is to feed hungry students – and how you can make a difference in your own backyard.
