The School Nutrition Foundation, one of the Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom, has worked to create engaging short videos to help operators, calculate the financial viability, get stakeholder buy-in, determine which delivery model is best for your school building, and think through the school’s equipment needs to start a universal breakfast in the classroom program.
Use these videos to spark conversations with stakeholders and to explore breakfast in the classroom in schools in your district!
