School Breakfast Community of Practice

 Since 2011, AASA has been funded by the Walmart Foundation to provide funding and technical assistance to districts to increase school breakfast participation. Districts were selected through a competitive application process. We bring all districts together periodically in a Community of Practice, which allows participants to share best practices, problem-solve and learn from one another.
