Definitions: Average daily participation in School Breakfast Program.

Data Source: Prior to 2015-2016, the Texas Hunger Initiative provided their analysis of  Texas Department of Agriculture data. From 2015-2016 onward, Texas Department of Agriculture data is accessed from the Texas Open Data Portal.
The Texas Hunger Initiative, a project of Baylor University, conducts university-based research to determine what anti-hunger efforts are effective and provides the support and expertise to coordinate work in communities—finding solutions to food insecurity that are greater than the sum of their parts.

Footnotes: Free or reduced price meals are available to students whose families earn less than 185% federal poverty guidelines or are enrolled in other programs for low-income children, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Children in foster care or who attend schools using the Community Eligibility Provision are also eligible.

Data for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years may be significantly different from other years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
