Many students come to school hungry in the morning, and instead of focusing on the lessons, they are focused on stomachaches and headaches that stem from hunger. Serving Breakfast in the Classroom is a great way to ensure every student has access to a balanced breakfast and can start the day nourished and ready to learn. If you are interested in learning more about how to plan and implement breakfast in the classroom, there are 2 upcoming opportunities for professional development in this area. Attendees at both events will receive a planning toolkit and ongoing technical assistance as they move forward and plan for this type of breakfast service.
