State Project Application – Due March 1


The Ohio School Breakfast Challenge (OSBC)
is a state-wide challenge for all Ohio schools to increase and sustain student participation in the School Breakfast Program by implementing breakfast strategies customized to meet the unique needs of their schools. Ohio FCCLA has partnered with OSBC as the 2019-2020 State Project. Students will create and implement strategies that have a real world impact on their community with measurable sustainable results. This State Project can serve as a classroom assignment, Career Development Event, State Projects Award and students can track service hours through the Service Learning Portal.

Since OSBC began, breakfast participation in Ohio has steadily increased with 32,000 more students participating in school breakfast over the last 5 years. 9,000 more students were served school breakfast in school year 2016, a 2% increase from the previous year.
