Breakfast with Buddies

Our team came up with the idea to promote more breakfast eating by offering physical activities after students ate breakfast. We came up with a theme every 2 weeks and did a special activity after breakfast. The students were rewarded for bringing a buddy with them as prizes were awarded to both for participation. On average, our breakfast program feeds around 20-25 daily, but during our special events we would serve 90-100. We also did a special breakfast activity every day during National Breakfast Week. We also offer smoothies during our special breakfast time and students love the refreshing addition to their regular menu.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and advisors came up with the different themes and activities that would be done during each event. We all meet in the morning making smoothies, setting up for the activities, and were there to promote a friendly atmosphere.
