Thank you notes are coming in from 5th graders at Oak Forest Elementary School in Memphis for the Breakfast Breaks and free basketball tickets to see the Memphis Grizzlies. A “team effort” between the Memphis Grizzlies, Memphis City School, and E S Foods provided Breakfast Breaks once a week, system-wide, to help promote the Breakfast in the Classroom program throughout Memphis. On the custom Breakfast Breaks packaging that touts a “Healthy Home Court,” students receive a coupon for a free child ticket to select Grizzlies games with the purchase of one adult ticket.
We’re excited about the positive messages this promotion provides kids – the importance of breakfast, exercise, and family time. This isn’t the first time E S Foods teamed up with sports teams to help get the word out on healthy breakfasts. We have also partnered with the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, the Baltimore Ravens and the Baltimore Orioles. We are continuing to work with sports teams, so ask us how we can create custom packaging for your city and school district.
