Breakfast in the Classroom at a school with 97% poverty
Dr. Maya Lagbara, principal of Harrell Budd Elementary School in Dallas Texas speaks on the positive effects of the Breakfast in the Classroom program at an advocacy meeting at the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB). 97% of the students at Dr. Lagbara's school qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. The NTFB aims to supplement the recent school staff and budget cuts by supplying schools with trained volunteers to assist in programs such as Breakfast in the Classroom.
