Books and Breakfast = Success: Celebrate School Breakfast Month!  
Throughout March, the Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading will join Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance and other partners to highlight the importance of a healthy breakfast and ways to improve students’ access to nutrition programs.

Schools and districts can join in the celebration by participating in the Books and Breakfast Challenge to raise their school breakfast program participation rates. Participating schools have the chance to win books, gift cards, and other prizes. For more information on the contest, contact Vivian Nicholson, Arkansas No Kid Hungry breakfast program director, at vnicholson@arhungeralliance.org.
Anyone can join in the celebration by entering AR-GLR and R.I.S.E Arkansas’s Twitter photo contest! Throughout the month of March, post a photo promoting the theme, “Books & Breakfast = Success.” The most innovative picture will win a prize! We encourage people to submit multiple entries. Photos must be tagged #BooksAndBreakfastAR to be considered.
New Report on the Prevalence of Child Care-Related Employment Disruptions
The Center for American Progress released a new report on the impact the scarcity and growing cost of child care have on parents’ employment. The report found that in each year from 2016-2018 over 12 percent of Arkansas parents had to quit a job, not take a job, or greatly change their job because of child care problems. This percentage of parents is above the national average of 8.8 percent.
