Rob McKenna Publishes Opinion Piece on Breakfast After the Bell

February.23.2016

Rob McKenna, a partner in Orrick's Public Policy Group, published an Opinion piece with Jack Irion, superintendent of Yakima School District, in the Seattle Times on Breakfast After the Bell legislation. An excerpt from the piece is included below.

We support Breakfast After the Bell because it is a smart solution to addressing hunger in our community. Breakfast After The Bell is targeted at the most vulnerable students. It’s designed to get to work feeding kids in roughly 400 high-need schools, where 70 percent or more students qualify for subsidized meals. That means that it would be working in places where it could have the biggest impact.
