Seattle Sounders Fc and United Way of King County to Launch County-wide School Breakfast Challenge at West Seattle Elementary on Friday, February 26

Not all kids are coming to school ready to learn. Many are missing breakfast and without that meal, it’s more difficult for them to concentrate. Students who eat breakfast have better attendance, improved test scores and are overall more likely to do better in school. However, Washington State rates 45 out of 50 states in the percentage of low-income students participating in both lunch and breakfast programs.
