10 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summarizing the first year report of a multi-year study of the Food and Nutrition Service's (Department of Agriculture) Child Nutrition Programs, this report describes the programs and methods of the study. Data were collected through telephone interviews with states and School Food Authorities (SFAs) between 1987 and 1992. Findings from 1987-1988 data include the following: (1) approximately 39.7 percent of all school lunches were served free to low income children; (2) 6.6 percent were served at a reduced rate; (3) 53.7 percent were served at full price; (4) National School Lunch Program participation was higher in SFAs offering the School Breakfast Program, in smaller SFAs, and in high-poverty areas; (5) average sfa cost of producing a lunch was $1.43; (6) Food and labor costs accounted for most of production costs; (7) 90 percent of SFAs received donated commodities such as cheese, flour, oil, chicken, and turkey from the federal Food Donation Program; (8) 43 percent of the SFAs that participated in the School Breakfast program cited student nutritional needs as a major concern; and (9) 28 percent of the SFAs felt breakfast was important to children's intellectual functioning. (Includes eight charts.) (Jw)

Eating breakfast : effects of the school breakfast program by Barbara L Devaney( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Begun as a pilot in 1966, the School Breakfast Program (sbp) is designed to provide funding for meals to ensure that children's nutritional needs are met. In recent years, researchers have become interested in the question of whether the availability of SBPs at school increases the likelihood of a child eating breakfast. This study was a reanalysis of data from the 1992 School Nutrition Dietary Assessment Study (snda-1). That study found that a school sbp did not increase the likelihood of a child eating breakfast; breakfast was defined as any food with at least 50 calories. To define breakfast more substantively in this study, a review of the literature was conducted, and three definitions of breakfast were developed: (1) consumption of any food or beverage; (2) breakfast intake of food energy greater than 10 percent of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (rda); or (3) consumption of foods from at least two of five main food groups and intake of food energy greater than 10 percent of the rda. Findings showed that as the definition of breakfast becomes more robust, the percentage of students who eat breakfast declines. Almost 9 of 10 students consumed any food or beverage, but only 6 of 10 met the third definition. For low-income students, as the definition of breakfast becomes more robust, the sbp is associated with an increased likelihood of eating breakfast. (Contains 20 references.) (Ev)
School lunch and breakfast cost study : final report( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents findings of a study that examined in detail the cost of producing reimbursable meals in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs (nsl and sbp) during school year 1992-93. The study examined the costs charged to SFAs (reported costs) and those costs incurred by the school district in support of sfa operations, but not charged to the sfa (unreported costs). Together, the reported and unreported costs comprise the full cost of meal production. Data were collected from a nationally representative sample of 94 School Food Authorities (SFAs). In each sfa, data were collected from a representative sample of schools and kitchens. The total sample included 540 schools. A total of 21 data-collection instruments were used in the interviews with sfa administrators, document analysis, and observations. Findings indicate that on average, SFAs operated at the break-even level, with total revenues about equal to total reported costs. Revenues from reimbursable meals exceeded the cost of producing those meals. Reimbursable lunches generated a revenue surplus that was used to offset losses from reimbursable breakfasts. Revenues from reimbursable meals (including government subsidies and student payments) accounted for an average of 85 percent of total sfa revenues. Across all SFAs, unreported costs accounted for an average of 17 percent of full costs. Finally, unreported costs were primarily for labor, indirect costs, equipment depreciation, and utilities. Appendices contain a description of the sample design and methodology, estimates of reported and full costs by type of meal-production system, regression models, and supplementary tables. (Lmi)
