Improve student performance with breakfast

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Making sure all students have enough to eat starting with breakfast is part of a new challenge just announced for the 2014-15 school year.

Riverside Central Elementary is one of the six Rochester schools selected to take part. The others include Ben Franklin Elementary, Elton Hills Elementary, Gage Elementary, John Adams Middle School and Sunset Terrace Elementary.
 
The group Hunger-Free Minnesota is giving each school a $2,500 grant along with 25 cents per breakfast meal served to free and reduced-priced eligible children.

Research shows that students who eat breakfast have better attendance records, higher math test scores and improved graduation rates.

One-hundred-twenty schools across Minnesota were chosen to take part.

Others in our area include five schools in Austin, Southwest Middle school in Albert Lea, and Winona Area Learning Center.
