Enrollment for the 2017-2018 Virginia Breakfast Challenge is now closed. Thank you to everyone who signed-up to be a part of the Challenge! At final tally, 1,514 schools from 127 divisions enrolled and 25 schools went the extra mile and participated in a Breakfast VIP event. School and division winners will be selected in Spring 2018.
What is the #VABreakfast Challenge?
From October 1 through December 31, 2017, schools across the Commonwealth competed for prizes and recognition by increasing participation in their school breakfast program.
School divisions of similar enrollment size competed against each other in one of four categories. 12 school winners and 4 school division winners will be named in the spring of 2018.
How can my school get involved?
To increase participation in your school breakfast program, consider an alternative breakfast model. Alternative breakfast models are shown to boost participation in your breakfast programs, helping you fill the stomachs of more children. For more information about how to flip your school breakfast model, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to special recognition events, winning divisions will receive prize packages, while winning schools will be awarded $1,000 each!
Funding awards will be based on timely receipt of required paperwork.
