We expect a lot from our students these days. They simply cannot thrive and learn each day without a nutritious breakfast to start their day. With the help of the Grab-n-Go Breakfast Program, we have been able to double the number of students eating breakfast. We tell our students, “Cars cannot run without gasoline and students’ brains cannot learn without breakfast.” It truly is the most important meal of the day!
