Breakfast, Anyone?

Our breakfast program was in need of a pick-me-up. After our previous breakfast program went out of business, we were looking for a food company that would give us flexibility while serving our students. Well, we are glad to say that this year we were able to give breakfast to the entire school population and they were allowed to eat breakfast in the classrooms, which made the students focus more on eating and less on talking to friends and not eating. I called this "Breakfast, Anyone?" because our students really look forward to getting it in the morning and getting that early fuel; it also helps those students who did not get a prepared meal at home.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

One of the challenges was to provide a person to prepare the breakfast for our kids. As a staff, we all pitched in until that happened. Our kids loved the breakfast change.
