School Breakfast Success Story
“I don’t know how you can expect any child to be at their best without that first meal.” – Jessica Moe, Principal at Longfellow Elementary School.
Longfellow Elementary in West Allis had a school breakfast program, but students weren’t eating. Teachers ended up buying drawer’s full of snacks to keep kids fed. So, after partnering with Hunger Task Force, they implemented a “Breakfast In the Classroom” program. Since they started the program, they’ve nearly TRIPLED the number of kids eating school breakfast, and have consequently seen strong positive change in their students.
