2nd Chance Breakfast

Access to Healthy Foods

The beginning of this present school year we implemented breakfast in the classroom as an option besides serving a hot breakfast before the school day begins. At present time we are now up 199 percent over last year. We have implemented this without having to increase staffing. We pre-bag the meals the day before based on daily numbers. Students are able pick up their meal and then eat in the classroom at the beginning of the day. Along with offering another breakfast, we sell a healthy snack of the day for students who may have forgotten to bring one with them.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We were able to implement due to a supportive administration, teachers, and child nutrition staff. Everyone worked together to make this a success in the school.
