The new law takes effect this fall. Consequently, the advocacy groups are working to answer questions regarding the law to ensure schools get the most out of it. This week, CPPP released “Making Breakfast Big in Texas,” a resource for those interested in ways that schools can serve each student breakfast while maximizing revenue.
“The implementation of SB 376 is essential in closing the gap of hungry children,” Children at Risk CEO Dr. Robert Sanborn said.”
“Expanding school breakfast participation in Texas schools is a proven tool to reduce the risk of hunger and boost academic outcomes for hundreds of thousands of low-income students,” Texas Food Bank Network CEO Celia Cole said. “We encourage every Texas school to take advantage of this opportunity to ensure every Texas child starts the school day nourished and ready to learn.”
Although some schools may need some more clueing in, Mineral Wells is already excited about the new law.
“I think it has the potential to be a successful program,” Haterius said. “This is one more way that we will take care of our children.”
