The Ohio School Breakfast Challenge (OSBC), a statewide campaign launched in 2014-2015 school year, challenged schools to increase School Breakfast Program participation so that all students have the opportunity to start each day healthy and ready to learn. All schools that participate in the School Breakfast Program were enrolled in the Ohio School Breakfast Challenge.
The Ohio School Breakfast Challenge is pleased to announce the 170 award winning schools for the 2014-2015 school year.
