About the Breakfast After the Bell Nutrition Program
House Bill 13-1006 was passed in Colorado, creating the Breakfast After the Bell Nutrition Program. The purpose of the program is to offer a breakfast at no charge to each student enrolled in a public school that has seventy percent or more students who are eligible for free or reduced price meals under the National School Lunch Program.
To increase the number of low-income students receiving a healthy breakfast, the Colorado Legislature passed the Breakfast After the Bell Nutrition bill in May 2013. The program requires public schools with 70 percent or more students who are eligible for free or reduced price lunch, to offer all students a breakfast at no cost.
