The got breakfast? Foundation has just completed its 2012 survey of food service directors to assess current trends in School Breakfast Programs.  One key finding: Breakfast sites have expanded beyond the cafeteria to alternate sites with the biggest gains reported in kiosk locations and breakfast in the classroom.  Here’s a sneak peak at the results – more will be posted soon.

  • Over two-fifths (42%) offer breakfast in the classroom; as compared to 30% in 2009.
  • Over ¼ (29%) offer breakfast from kiosks; as compared to 4% in 2009.
