Action Two: Continue free, healthy school breakfasts for all Connecticut students and leverage federal funds to expand no-cost school meals.
Our kids should have what they need to learn. Providing students with adequate nutrition is essential for success in school, just like school buses, textbooks and technology.
- Annualize the $16 million allocated in the 2023/24 school year to provide no-cost school breakfast for all Connecticut students in participating districts.
- Leverage federal funds to cover most of the cost to expand no-cost school meals — state funds fill only the gap between federal reimbursement and actual costs.
