Breakfast in the Classroom

Many logistical problems come to mind when considering Classroom Breakfast. Staffing? Cleanup? Class disruption? Yet in schools across the country, a combined effort of staff, teachers, custodians, and students have made Classroom Breakfast a success.

Implementation Strategies

  • Breakfast is delivered on carts by designated service staff and served in the first 7-10 minutes of class, while teachers take role and/or review morning announcements.
  • Student representatives pick up breakfasts from the eating area and take them back to the class in a cart or on a wagon.
  • Students stop by the eating area and pick up breakfast and then go to class.

Breakfast in the classroom helps build up class camaraderie as students are “breaking bread” together.
