Access to Healthy Foods

After a long process of getting our school qualified and participating in the National School Lunch Program last year, we decided to offer breakfast this year. It has been a huge success. The kids are super excited every morning to get their breakfast and be able to make a choice on their own about what they get to eat. The joy we get is to know that as they choose what they want, we get the satisfaction of knowing that it is always a healthy choice and feel that it helps them be more focused in class when they have good food in their tummys. It has been are greatest accomplishment to be able to provide healthy breakfast and lunches to our children.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We will continue to provide healthy and exciting choices to our children for breakfast and lunch.

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

The challenge that we have faced was trying to create a breakfast and lunch menu to stay in the guidelines of the lunch program, and to also make sure that everything is meat-free and kosher, as we have to stay within both guidelines per our school.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen an increase in the number of children choosing to eat school breakfast and school lunch.
