Our grab and go is going on for the second year in our middle and high school and we are seeing an increase in participation. The kids have really enjoy being able to pick something up around 9:00. The numbers have been great last year we served total breakfast in k-12 ,24,723 and in this year our number was 28,373. so that is a 3650 more served this year. We also added a second choice on the elementary side and that has been a great reward for us.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

As adults we had to change our thinking and so we added a second entree on the elementary side and a fourth option on the high side. and as a team we felt it was a great addition to our breakfast.

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

We will keep offering choices at breakfast. Because we are keeping track of what the kids like and don't like. We also feel it is getting easier to be ready for the kids each day

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I feel the kids are happier and there are less kids going in to see the nurse.
