Schools provided only 36.2 PERCENT of federally funded breakfasts needed to reach low-income Illinois schoolchildren in 2013-2014, meaning hundreds of thousands of children were at risk of going hungry in the classroom. Illinois' low utilization rate of the National School Breakfast Program results in fewer federal dollars for school districts -- Illinois leaves $90.4 MILLION in federal funding on the table because schools do not serve breakfast.
