The Center for Public Policy Priorities highlighted two national reports on the National School Breakfast Program. Among the findings:

  • Texas has the highest percentage of schools offering breakfast to students of any state in the nation, with 100 percent of schools offering a School Breakfast Program.
  • The Houston Independent School District ranks 3rd among urban school districts in the percentage of eligible students eating breakfast at school. In the 2010-2011 school year, almost four out of five (78.1 percent) low-income students at Houston ISD participated in the school breakfast program, compared to just over half (56.2 percent) in the previous year.
