Celebrating National School Breakfast Week

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and schools provide millions of breakfasts to hungry children every single school day!  This gives us reason to celebrate! 

Every March, the nation celebrates National School Breakfast Week. National School Breakfast Week was launched in 1989 to raise awareness of the availability of the School Breakfast Program to all children.

Governor Asa Hutchinson has proclaimed March as Arkansas School Breakfast Month!

Governor Hutchinson’s proclamation increases public awareness, provides school food service administrators a wonderful opportunity to promote the breakfast program, benefiting thousands of students in Arkansas.

JNPSD’s Director of Child Nutrition Clint Walker spoke of the District’s Community Eligibility Program where all students eat free at today’s press conference at the Capitol.
