FRAC Releases School Breakfast Scorecard for 2009-10
On January 13, 2011, the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) released information on School Breakfast demand and participation for 2009-10, which showed that despite record demand for school meals, less than half (47.2%) of low-income children who receive school lunches eat school breakfasts. In Arizona, the figure was even lower at only 44%, placing the state in the middle of the pack nationally. Beyond missed opportunities to feed hungry kids, the report highlights how states miss out on federal funding by serving so few breakfasts to eligible children. Here, Arizona ranked 10th in the most federal funding lost, at almost $18.5 million in 2009-10.
