School Breakfast Scorecard


II. National Findings In

II. National Findings In the 2015–2016 school year, school breakfast participation continued to grow at a steady pace: On an average school day, 14.2 million children participated in the School Breakfast Program; 12.1 million of them were low-income children who received a free or reduced-price school breakfast. Breakfast participation among low-income (free or reduced-price eligible) children increased by just over 433,000 students, or 3.7 percent, over the previous school year. This year’s growth was consistent with recent progress. Participation grew by 475,000 students, or 4.2 percent, in the 2014–2015 school year; 343,000 students, or 3.2 percent, in the 2013–2014 school year; and 311,000 children, or 3 percent, in the 2012–2013 school year. The ratio of low-income children participating in school breakfast per 100 that participated in school lunch inched up to 56 out of 100 in 2015–2016, up from 54.3 per 100 in the previous school year. If all states met FRAC’s goal of reaching 70 low-income children with school breakfast for every 100 participating in school lunch, an additional 3 million children would start the day with a healthy breakfast at school. States and school districts would tap into an additional $836 million in federal funding to support their school food service and their local economies.

The number of schools offering school meal programs remained relatively steady, with 90,355 schools offering breakfast and 98,004 offering school lunch. The share of schools offering school breakfast compared to those that offer school lunch improved slightly to 92.2 percent, an increase from 91.2 percent in the previous school year. Over the past 10 years, school breakfast participation has increased significantly among low-income children. Since the 2006–2007 school year, the number of low-income children eating breakfast at school on an average day has increased by nearly half, growing from 8.1 million to 12.1 million in the 2015–2016 school year. During this time period, the Great Recession sparked unprecedented growth in the program for several years due to increased need, and several program improvements were implemented that streamlined access to the program, including direct certification and the Community Eligibility Provision. Since the 2006–2007 school year, the number of low-income children eating breakfast at school on an average day has increased by nearly half.
