Grab n' Go breakfasts expand to middle schools
From a Cy-Fair ISD press release:
During the month of March, the CFISD Food Service department will implement Grab n' Go breakfasts at Kahla, Hopper, Labay, Dean, Thornton, Watkins and Truitt middle schools.
Students will be able to pick up a bagged breakfast when they enter their pin numbers at kiosks located near bus rider entrances. Students
who qualify for free or reduced lunches also qualify for free or reduced breakfast prices. Breakfast will include a hot breakfast entree or
yogurt and graham crackers with fruit or juice and milk.
Students at the new Grab n' Go breakfast campuses will be entered for a chance to win an iPod Touch every time they eat school breakfast during the month of March.
According to CFISD food service director Matt Morgan, the program was included at the middle school level after the National School Breakfast
Program more than doubled following Grab n' Go implementation at 39 elementary schools.
We started Grab n' Go at six middle schools this week because we are trying to increase breakfast participation," Morgan said. We had a tremendous amount of success at the elementary level, and the next logical step was to transfer it to middle schools. We focused on the schools with a lower percentage of breakfast participation, and we think
this will give students more opportunities to eat an important meal."
