Breakfast at the Desk: The Impact of Universal Breakfast Programs on Academic Performance

February 24, 2014 09:30 AM

Prepared by Dallas D. Dotter, Mathematica Policy Research, this paper was originally presented at the 2013 Fall Research Conference in the session Exploring the Impact of School Breakfast Policy. It is now featured in APPAM's Online Paper Collection.
