Nutritious meals improve students’ cognitive function, test scores and attention spans. With a nutritious breakfast and lunch, student behavior and attention spans improve, and they have fewer absences and office referrals. Before the school closure, some families struggled to pay for their children’s school lunch. When students come back to school, we want them to return without the worry of debt.
