Why should I participate?
According to a 2015 survey of SNA members, 96% said that their student participation increases during NSBW. Recognizing NSBW in your district or in your cafeteria helps you:
- Increase student participation
- Spread the message to parents that you’re serving healthy and tasty breakfasts at school

- Connect with teachers and administrators at your school or in your district to spread the word that school breakfasts are healthy and delicious
When is it? What if the timing doesn’t work for me?
NSBW 2019 is scheduled for March 4-8 by an act of Congress, but if you have a student holiday or teacher work day during that week you can celebrate anytime! The week before, or the week after—it’s up to you!
