National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) is an annual national campaign designed to raise awareness of the National School Breakfast Program in school communities across the country. NSBW was launched in 1989 by the federal government as a means for all K-12 students in the United States to have access to nutritious school breakfast. More than 14 million children participate each day!
In Chesapeake, we recognize the importance of school breakfast in fueling the minds of our students and are happy to announce that Western Branch High, Oscar Smith High, Indian River High, and Greenbrier Middle received grants this year from No Kid Hungry Virginia to support Breakfast After the Bell programs.
