Breakfast After the Bell Program

Breakfast After the Bell Program

Per PA 99-0850, starting SY2017-18, every public school in which at least 70 percent of the students were eligible for free or reduced-price lunches in October of the preceding year must operate a Breakfast after the Bell Program. Breakfast after the bell means breakfast is provided to children after the instructional day has officially begun and does not prohibit schools from also providing breakfast before instructional day begins. Schools may choose whatever delivery model that best suits the students.
