Where? Schools decide. For example: students can eat in the cafeteria, similar to traditional breakfast or take a bagged meal to be eaten in between classes or during next period.

When? After the school starts as long as it’s before lunch. For example: Students eat after first period, or during a morning nutrition break, either in the cafeteria, common areas or between classes.

Works best for: Older students. They are often not hungry early in the morning and tend to arrive at school closer to the start of the school day.

Breakfast Reimbursement: To be reimbursed for breakfast meals served, proper meal counting procedures must be in place.
