|Lisa Losasso (DairyMax) and Mary Agnew (Texas Hunger Initiative) present a check to Connally ISD|
At the Connally ISD school board meeting on September 19th, 2011 DairyMax and the Texas Hunger Initiative (THI) presented a check to assist the costs of running the Breakfast in the Classroom program. The funds will be used to cover the costs of things like coolers, serving tools, and cleaning supplies.
Connally ISD rolled out the Breakfast in the Classroom program in their primary and elementary schools for the first time in their district this school year. DairyMax and THI have been working with the district since May, meeting with faculty and staff, presenting the program, running through logistics, and serving as a knowledge base for the program.
Currently only 54% of eligible Texas students eat the free breakfast offered at schools. Breakfast in the classroom aims to increase breakfast participation to students in need.
