More breakfast being served in Oregon schools
Jan. 17—Nationwide and in Oregon, about half the children who are eligible for the federal free school lunch program also get breakfast at school. That is major progress, according to a new report from the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC).
Last year, Oregon raised the number of pupils starting out with a healthy school breakfast by more than 5 percent. Serving breakfast is up to each district or even individual schools, depending on the need and their budgets.
