For every 100 students who eat a free or reduced-price lunch, only 47 received breakfast so each year, nearly 450,000 students eligible for free or reduced-price breakfast in Illinois do not receive it, leaving many at-risk students hungry and federal funding left on the breakfast table.

With your help, we can do better.

Breakfast After the Bell programs help ensure all children get a healthy meal to start the day! Taking the first step to start the process is an investment in your community and in your children. Do your part to make sure no child goes hungry.

The first step is to request to be contacted by a Rise & Shine Illinois School Breakfast Coordinator.
