Last spring, our school received a FUTP 60 breakfast cart and we began a Second Chance Breakfast Program. The cart was a huge success right away, but had some logistical issues that needed to be worked out. Too many students at the wrong time of day. The Fueled Spartans gathered and brainstormed some options for a more successful breakfast experience. This fall, the changes were implemented to expand the time frame from 20 minutes to 40 minutes. Another checkout till was opened and we are now feeding about close to a third of our school. (about 300 students out of 1000). The FUTP 60 team also created an expectations video for students as well!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students gave feedback as to how they thought the breakfast cart could accommodate more students more efficiently.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We are feeding many more students now. The wait time in line is less and students are getting back to class faster!
