cost benefit analysis findings
Cost/Benefit Analysis sponsored by UW-Extension and DPI in 2006

Why do the survey?

Cost often cited by school administrators as biggest barrier for not offering a SBP.

Surveyed schools that had successful breakfast programs

Diverse schools (urban vs. rural)

Diverse school breakfast delivery (traditional, Grab N Go, Mid Morning, etc.

Cost Benefit Analysis Findings
findings
School Breakfast Programs can be profitable

All of the high schools interviewed were able to break-even on their School Breakfast Program.

In half of the districts interviewed, breakfast programs were more profitable than lunch programs.

Lessons learned from these schools…

Findings
findings27
PARTICIPATION MATTERS

Profitability was highly associated with participation rates. The higher the average daily participation (ADP) rate, the more likely a program will be profitable.

Participation is greatly affected by the type of school breakfast program offered.

Mid morning, breakfast in the classroom had the highest participation levels compared to other service models

When students have ample opportunity to purchase and consume breakfast, participation increases.

Findings
findings28
PARTICIPATION MATTERS

Best practices suggest that promotion and marketing of the program are key to increasing participation rates.

Location of SBP affects participation levels

Offering a designated time and place for breakfast greatly increases ADP and the profitability of the SBP

‘Bringing breakfast to the students’ vs. ‘bringing the students to breakfast’ attitude.

Findings
findings29
SUPPORT MATTERS

Support was listed by Foodservice Directors as the #1 reason for their success.

Gathering support before starting an SBP will help ensure a successful launch.

Support from the:

Administrators and School Board Members

Teachers (esp. if proposing Breakfast in the Classroom)

Custodial staff

Parents

Students

Findings
findings30
EVALUATION MATTERS

Proposal to start up a breakfast program or to change/improve a program must include plans for evaluating or assessing the program throughout the year.

Ongoing SBP evaluation is critical and noted by schools to be an important issue affecting profitability.
