Breakfast a “Moral Imperative” in Burlington

Growing child poverty prompted Burlington Township Superintendent Christopher Manno to implement classroom breakfast last year. Today, breakfast is routinely served during the first few minutes of the school day to all elementary students. Burlington teachers say the process runs smoothly – and kids are then ready to learn.

“The benefits so far outweigh the management of the logistics,” Manno said. “We believe for learning to take place the basic needs of children have to be addressed and that includes nourishment. School breakfast is a moral imperative for us.”
