Breakfast program grows

Vermont schools continue to see record participation in the school breakfast program, compared to other states in the nation. More than 15,000 low-income children eat a taxpayer-paid school breakfast on an average school day across the state, according to the School Breakfast Scorecard 2009-10, an annual report issued by the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC). In 2009 Vermont saw a record 15.5 percent increase over the previous school year which moved Vermont from 9th to 3rd in the nation for participation. In 2010, Vermont saw a slight increase in breakfast participation and maintained its national participation ranking.
