Creating healthy school meals can be costly, but the federal government wants to help struggling schools offer healthy options that leave students feeling energized and ready to learn.

This week, U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will announce new USDA grants to fund new school kitchen equipment to help schools serve healthy meals for students.

As part of the announcement, the Secretary will join local leaders, parents and teachers at Rayburn Elementary in San Antonio, Texas to serve breakfast to students in celebration of National School Breakfast Week. The Secretary will also discuss the findings of a new study showing the impact skipping breakfast has on a child’s ability to learn.
