As part of a District-wide effort to increase breakfast participation, SDP implemented two initiatives in 2017-18: targeting 30 schools to implement alternative breakfast models (such as breakfast in the classroom and grab-and-go carts) and implementing a breakfast challenge sponsored by the Coalition Against Hunger, which offered prizes to schools with the largest breakfast participation. This brief analyzes breakfast participation data from Fall 2016 and 2017 to answer two research questions:

  1. Did breakfast participation rates differ in schools that implemented different breakfast delivery models?
  2. What happened to breakfast participation rates in schools targeted by Food Services to adopt alternative breakfast delivery models, in schools that participated in the School Breakfast Challenge, and in schools that implemented both?
