Offer vs. Serve Breakfast Poster (Secondary) – What does yours look like?

The new breakfast regulations mean new menus, and correct cafeteria signage. Help your students understand a reimbursable, complete meal with colorful posters on the food line. Keep in mind the following:

-Visuals are the best way to understanding. Pictures speak volumes.
-Large and in charge. Make sure to put front and center. The larger the poster size the better.

Here is an example of a secondary poster from the Boulder Valley School District.

Healthy Breakfast-4-Kids Grant Report

The Healthy Breakfast-4-Kids (HB4K) goal is to create and improve access to breakfast in schools nationwide as a means to lessen the huge negative impact of hungry children across our nation. In 2012, Food Family Farming Foundation (F3) and Walmart Foundation partnered to grant 117 $2,500 equipment grants to high needs schools for the purpose of assisting in the successful establishment of universal breakfast in the classroom programs.

Grants for School Breakfast

Grants are to support the purchase of approved equipment, materials and initiatives facilitating alternative breakfast delivery models in an effort to increase student participation in universal school breakfast. Grants can be requested in any amount up to $5,000.

Applying schools must either be implementing or be prepared to implement an alternative breakfast delivery model. All applications must have authorized approval by the School Principal and Food Service Nutrition Director.

Adams 14 strives to help its students overcome barriers to success by offering every student breakfast in the classroom as the school day begins.

Here are some guidelines and tips to help make this program a success.

FRAC Facts: Community Eligibility

"Community Eligibility allows schools with high numbers of low-income children to serve free breakfast and lunch to all students without collecting school meal applications. This option increases participation by children in the school meal programs, while schools reduce labor costs and increase their federal revenues, allowing for a healthier student body and a healthier school meal budget."

Breakfast in the Classroom Fact Sheet

"Serving breakfast at the beginning of the school day dramatically increases participation by making it convenient and accessible to all, no matter how students arrive at school. For instance, it eliminates the barrier often caused by tight bus schedules. Service options include breakfast in the classroom, “grab and go” breakfast service from carts or kiosks set up in school hallways or cafeterias, and breakfast after first period in middle and high schools."
