Dear Supporter,

It has come to our attention that the data for school breakfast student participation in two districts – Seaside Heights and Hillside – was erroneously reported in our recently-released 4th Annual NJ School Breakfast Report. ACNJ sincerely regrets the errors and apologizes to those districts.

The corrected statistics show that Seaside Heights actually fed 45 percent of low-income students, not the 3 percent originally reported. This takes the district off ACNJ’s “School Breakfast Underachievers List.”

Hillside also fed a higher percentage of eligible students – 23 percent, not 8 percent. However, since the district fed fewer than 30 percent of low-income students in May 2014, it remains on the underachievers list.

Revised data sheets, underachievers list and the main report is available here.

The Food for Thought School Breakfast Campaign is a partnership of state agencies, child advocates, anti-hunger coalitions, statewide education organizations and national organizations.
