Healthy Breakfast for All at Central Elementary
Our school provides a daily healthy breakfast to all students on campus as well as teachers free of charge. Our school implemented this breakfast program due to the need for access not just to healthy breakfasts, but breakfast in general. Our school is 99% free and reduced lunch. Many of our students were coming to school hungry everyday, as they did not have access to breakfast at home. Our school made the decision to begin providing breakfast in the classroom for all students to insure their needs were met. Teachers are also provided with the same healthy breakfast as the students each day. Since implementing this program, students have been performing better in class and complaining less of hungry tummies and sleepiness.
