Principal McElhaney from Maryland started an innovative breakfast program at his school three years ago with the help of the No Kid Hungry campaign. He is witnessing the effects of kids accessing a healthy breakfast every day.

– NO KID HUNGRY IMPACT –
Through the First Class Breakfast Initiative, Maryland Meals for Achievement and other efforts, the number of kids eating a free or reduced-price school breakfast daily in Maryland increased by more than 30,000 students between 2010 and 2012. More than 130 Maryland schools have moved breakfast out of the cafeteria in order to make it part of the school day, an innovative way to maximize participation among eligible students.

The Arkansas No Kid Hungry campaign is connecting more kids to the summer meals program as part of our strategy to end childhood hunger. Since 2010, the number of summer meals sites across the state has increased from 435 sites to more than 580 sites in 2012. During this time, the number of summer meals served to kids during the summer increased by more than 730,000 – a 41 percent increase.
