School Breakfast Program (SBP)

Overview

School Nutrition Programs | Program Guidance | Forms | Resources | Nutrition Education

The School Breakfast Program (SBP) is a federally assisted meal program under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). It operates in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions (RCCIs). The SBP provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free breakfasts to children each school day. The program was established under the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 to ensure that all children have access to a healthy breakfast at school to promote learning readiness and healthy eating behavior. Research studies show that increased SBP participation is associated with better academic test scores, daily attendance, and class participation. The SBP has also been linked to reductions in student absences and tardiness.
