School Breakfast Report Card

In Texas, where 27.6 percent of children are considered food insecure, the public school system is a principle infrastructure for reigning in childhood hunger.

To assist in those efforts, the Texas Hunger Initiative presents the second edition of the Texas School Breakfast Report Card. We hope it will serve as a timely resource for Texas schools, ensuring that all students have access to a nutritious breakfast.
