Improving the quality of free meals for kids
Because nearly every child experiencing food insecurity attends a public school, school meals are the number one source of daily nutrition for kids facing hunger.
That’s why leveraging schools as the critical access point for feeding kids is at the core of Project Bread’s work to end child hunger in Massachusetts.
To help children reach their potential, Project Bread partners with school districts and supports school nutrition staff through our Child Nutrition Outreach & Chefs in Schools™ teams to both feed more kids daily and offer healthier and tastier school meals to fuel student’s success.

With schools reopened and facing all new challenges this fall to feed kids, we strategized and launched our newest school meals initiative in October to provide more support to the dedicated professionals operating the school nutrition programs that feed our kids daily: Project Bread School Food Fellowships.
“Working with Project Bread has really helped elevate our food service program. After our partnership ends, they’ll leave our school with successful recipes and the pride of being able to cook wonderful food for our children.”
