Spread the Word, Breakfast is Good for Everyone!
Every morning, in a span of 15 minutes, 300 children eat a healthy and nutritous breakfast before school at Salk Elementary School in Anaheim, California. That number continues to grow, our goal is that by June, 2019, half of our school (450 students), will be eating breakfast at school. How? We spread the word, breakfast is healthy and it's complimentary for all children at Salk! Who are "we?" We are the teachers, custodians, kitchen staff, aides, parents, administration, Fuel Up to Play 60 participants, and Student Council members. We are spreading the word of this great opportunity at Salk School. Thank you everyone for helping our children succed. 

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We are communicating, we use text, e-mail, morning announcements, posters, and we talk to parents at conferences, before and after school. We are spreading the word throughout the community that children have the opportunity to eat a healthy and nutritious complimentary breakfast at school if they are unable to at home.
