About the NJ Food for Thought School Breakfast Campaign
Led by Advocates for Children of New Jersey and the New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition, the Food For Thought campaign is driven by a statewide steering committee that includes state agencies, anti-hunger, education and health organizations and child advocates. The Food Research Action Center and the American Dairy Association and Council are the campaign's national partners.
The campaign’s goal is to boost participation in the federal School Breakfast Program by 30 percent by June 2013. If we achieve this goal, about 40,000 more children will get a healthy breakfast each school day.
The steering committee is working to build statewide support for school breakfast expansion, as well as assisting local efforts to expand school breakfast participation. Currently, efforts are underway in Paterson, Trenton, Union City and Camden.
