Rise and Shine Massachusetts, led by the Food Bank Coalition of Massachusetts, supports legislation that would call upon high-poverty Massachusetts schools to serve breakfast after the start of the school day in order to increase access for more than 150,000 students to the school breakfast program. The bill is co-sponsored by State Senator Sal DiDomenico (S. 242) and State Representative Aaron Vega (H.327).

Breakfast after the Bell increases breakfast participation rates, in some cases from as low as 45 percent to 85 percent. Help us ensure all Massachusetts students receive the same access to breakfast.

You can view a list of school districts and schools that would be impacted by the legislation.
