A 1998 Tufts University study states: ?Children who participate in the U.S.Department of Agriculture’s School Breakfast Program were shown to have significantly higher standardized achievement test scores than eligible non-participants. Children getting school breakfasts also had significantly reduced absence and tardiness rates. Your child can get a free breakfast at participating schools at one income level ($25,155 for a family of four) and at a reduced fee at another level ($35,798 for a family of four) . Families who pay full price still get a bargain. Lunch is also available under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch program at 98,800 schools serving 26 million children. The same general requirements apply to both programs. Contact your local School Food Service Authority in your school system. If all this fails, contact your state Department of Education.

Income Eligibility: Family of 4 – $35,798. These income requirements are estimates and you should check with your local office to verify eligibility as many programs have exceptions and the income amounts change often and vary from location to location.
