54,763 Healthy Breakfast Meals Were Served to our Students!
This week was the perfect time to bring attention to the school breakfast program, and increased breakfast participation was a huge goal for many of our schools. National School Breakfast Week is a weeklong celebration focused on the importance of students eating a healthy, well balanced breakfast to fuel their mornings and achieve greatness in the classroom! For 2017, National School Breakfast Week took place between March 6-10.
During that week, the Lintons crew celebrated breakfast in our 29 schools with fun decorations, upbeat music, and a raffle for a chance to win a new Razor Scooter, a Mountain Bike, or Skullcandy Hesh 2 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones! The students were also offered a special menu, which consisted of a whole grain turkey sausage egg & cheese wrap, warm grits, and a homemade apple pie smoothie.
Fun was had by all throughout the week! We look forward to next year's National School Breakfast Week, which takes place between March 5-9, 2018. The School Nutrition Association creates a theme each year for National School Breakfast week, and next year's theme is "I Heart School Breakfast!"
