During National School Breakfast Week (March 8-12), we celebrate the importance of nutritious school breakfasts that fuel student success. This year’s theme “Score Big with School Breakfast” reminds the community of the value of a healthy breakfast in helping students “score big” and accomplish their goals each day. One way schools are celebrating in Buncombe County this week is by adding an extra Pillsbury breakfast item to their menus!

“Eating a healthy breakfast provides the foundation our students need to learn, be active, and 'score big' in life,” said Child Nutrition Director Lisa Payne. “We are excited to celebrate National School Breakfast week to send the message to our students and families that we are serving nutritious meals for students daily.”

According to the School Nutrition Association, studies show that school breakfasts help students with academic performance, concentration, memory, alertness, and physical health.

In Buncombe County, school breakfasts are available at no cost. Students are offered an assortment of fresh fruits, natural fruit juices, milk, and USDA-approved grain items. Schools may deliver breakfast meals in a variety of ways, such as classroom delivery, bus and car rider carts, cafeteria service, etc., per current needs. If you have any questions about breakfast service at your school, please ask to speak with your school’s Nutrition Manager.
