Physical, Emotional & Academic Support

Books & Breakfast is a before school program offering a nutritious breakfast and homework assistance to Evanston students in need of additional support. B&B exists so that every student enters his or her classroom physically, emotionally and academically prepared.  


A typical day at the reinvented B&B program usually includes a good morning hug, a healthy meal, time with an individual tutor and the reward of game time. Books & Breakfast is expanding our work to impact more of the students who need it the most. Just as it began 30 years ago, it remains a community effort.


Our Vision

Books & Breakfast envisions an Evanston community in which every child is understood to be a valued and connected part of the community, where every school community reflects this reality, and where every child is able to reach his or her full academic potential. B&B envisions an Evanston community that is actively committed to just and equitable outcomes for all its children.
