School Breakfast Score Card.
Food Research and Action Center, Washington, DC.
The School Breakfast Program supplies federal funds to schools and residential child care institutions who provide breakfasts to children. This status report compares the performances of states to each other and to the nation as a whole in school breakfast participation. States are grouped in categories of the 10 top- and bottom-ranked participants. The first section examines overall outcomes, offering a snapshot of school breakfast participation by schools and low-income students in each state. Recent accomplishments are presented in the second section, which measures progress made during 1990-91 in expanding breakfast programs in schools and in serving low-income students. Section 3 focuses on state efforts by indicating states' use of four tools for program expansion--state mandates, state funding, federal startup funds, and direct certification. The fourth section focuses on evaluation, rating the states' performances in the preceding three sections. Eight tables are included. (LMI)
