School Breakfast Week is March 2 – 6
RACINE – The Office for Child Nutrition appreciates the time, effort and energy that food service professionals put in on a daily basis to make school meals available to the children in the state of Ohio. The Office for Child Nutrition also appreciates the hard work day that teachers engage in; and in addition to scholastics, the effort educators put forth toward encouraging students to eat a healthy breakfast. School breakfast is essential for promoting student achievement in the classroom and throughout their day. This year’s theme for National School Breakfast Week is “Make the Grade with School Breakfast”. For all of the schools currently offering school breakfast, we thank you very much.
“I would like to thank all of our teachers, our kitchen staff and our support staff for encouraging students to eat,” said Scott Wolfe, Southern Administrative Assistant. “Not only does a healthy breakfast jump-start the students’ school day, but breakfast provides nutritional needs for a student’s overall well being.”
Southern offers “Free Breakfast” for all and “Free Lunch” for all students Pre-K to 8th grade as part of the Community Eligibility Provision grant.
