Join us for National School Breakfast Week!

February 28, 2019

 

School breakfast is a healthy way to start the day!  Join us on March 6th at 9:15 a.m. for Hear the Pennsylvania Crunch! and take a bite out of an apple to help show the importance of school breakfast!  Hear the Pennsylvania Crunch! is organized by Feeding Pennsylvania to spread the message that every child in Pennsylvania should have access to a healthy school breakfast.

Research shows that eating breakfast helps children concentrate and learn while in school.  Students who eat school breakfast perform better on tests, have better health, and are less likely to be absent from school.  Hear the Pennsylvania Crunch! highlights the important role of the School Breakfast Program in ensuring that all children have access to the healthy food that they need.  School breakfast is a critical support for struggling families trying to stretch limited resources and provides children a significant portion of the nutrition they need to learn and be healthy.

We encourage you to take photos and share them on social media!  Help us promote this event by using the hashtag #HearthePACrunch.  Happy Crunchin’!
