Every morning, over 90,000 schools and institutions serve school breakfast. These breakfasts serve over 14 million students.

In fact, recent research shows that nationally nearly 60% of high school students skip breakfast regularly.

One of those areas was his school’s decision to create a “second-chance” breakfast program by moving breakfast 90 minutes later in the day.
