Learn how to gather, analyze, and compile breakfast data into a report that can be used to draw attention to areas of your state that could reach more low-income students with the School Breakfast Program. Creating a state breakfast report is an excellent way to identify and highlight growth opportunity for the SBP in your state, and presenters will share strategies to help you create an eye-catching, “newsworthy” report, as well as tips on how best to target report findings toward decision makers.
FRAC: School Board Champions for School Breakfast Expansion
Finally, on Thursday, October 8, 2015, at 3 p.m. EST, FRAC will present School Board Champions for School Breakfast Expansion. School board members can play a key role in bringing breakfast-in-the-classroom and other alternative service models to their district. FRAC’s webinar will highlight action steps school board members can take to support breakfast expansion. There will also be a discussion of how state school board associations can engage with other local stakeholders—advocates, parents, and members of the school community—to bring BIC to more districts in your state.
