School Breakfast at Half Century - A Look Back to Move Ahead

School Breakfast at Half Century - A Look Back to Move Ahead, a report authored by Janet Poppendieck, reflects on her decades of research and advocacy to promote the School Breakfast Program in light of its 50th anniversary. She lifts up this critical program, which provided 2.3 billion nutritious meals to America’s children last year, and its steady growth as possibly the best example of effective advocacy and productive cooperation between national anti-hunger organizations and state and local groups. This report examines the history, challenges, policy gains and role of advocacy in shaping the program.
