Breakfast after the Bell Gains Momentum

Another of our "Top 5" legislative priorities is the "Breakfast After The Bell" program.  Vancouver Council President, Heather Lindberg, leads the WSPTA issue team and is pictured here with her daughter before a recent public hearing on the bill.  The bill would fund grants for high needs elementary schools allowing them to participate in the Federal Breakfast program.  

Sponsored in the House by Rep. Zack Hugdins (HB 1295) and by Sen. Steve Litzow in the Senate (SB 5437), the bill has a broad base of support and cleared a critical hurdle this week when it passed the House Education Committee.  For more information on the program, click here.

The Bill has a long way to go before becoming law, and we need your help. Join us by signing up to be on the Breakfast issue team here!
