Worried about Classroom Clean-Up? Tune into this call.

One of the biggest challenges schools face when implementing breakfast in the classroom is how to ensure that classrooms and hallways are clean without interrupting the daily routine or instructional time. The Food Research Action Center is hosting a call to address this issue and will showcase innovative strategies that schools serving classroom breakfast use to keep classrooms and hallways clean. The call is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 12 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Register today.

Take the School Breakfast Challenge…And Win!

New Jersey has a long way to go to catch up to other states when it comes to ensuring that all students start their school day with a healthy breakfast that can help them succeed in school. In fact, New Jersey is nearly last in the nation for its low school breakfast participation.

The NJ Food for Thought School Breakfast Campaign is challenging all NJ districts to change the way they serve breakfast to increase student participation. Three districts in North Jersey and three in South Jersey will win grants and 1st place winners will get a pep rally with an NFL player.
