Last week at Maryland’s State House, the Governor’s Office for Children kicked off the state’s First Class Breakfast Initiative which aims to expand and improve school breakfast programs. This announcement came as part of the Partnership to End Childhood Hunger in Maryland.
As part of this new Breakfast First Initiative, 21 schools in the state will get breakfast makeovers, and our own Breakfast BREAKS will be on the menu in many locations. Although all schools in Maryland are required to serve breakfast, the focus of the new Initiative now is on alternate site breakfast programs – thus, Breakfast BREAKS is the ideal grab ‘n go solution.

In the video, Share Our Strength, the Maryland Governor’s Office for Children, along with students, teachers, administrators, and nursing staff at Elmwood Elementary school share their experience about a School Breakfast program that’s working in their school.
