Do You Know of an Innovative School Breakfast Program?

“Breakfast in the Classroom”, “Grab ‘n Go”, and “Breakfast on the Bus” are great examples of innovative models currently used across California to successfully serve school breakfast. CFPA is conducting a survey to find out which California school districts are bringing the benefits of the most important meal of the day to the most students and how.  If you know of a school district successfully using an innovative school breakfast model please take a moment to tell us more about it! E-mail Nicola at nicola@cfpa.net.
