FASTBREAK – Basketball Breakfast Program

“For school-aged children that need that extra nutrition to get through the day…”

For growing youth, the most important meal of the day is breakfast. Unfortunately, for too many youth, this may be their only meal for the day – making it that much more important. Many youth in underserved communities go to school hungry, making it virtually impossible for them to learn at their full potential. No one can concentrate on an empty stomach, so having a healthy breakfast makes a big difference.

Studies have shown that there is a dramatic improvement in health and academic performance amongst youth who eat a healthily breakfast. The purpose of the Fastbreak Basketball Breakfast Program is help provide at-risk youth with a level playing field in the classroom – on and off the court, good health can lead to a better life for these youth.
