Phoenix Hebrew Academy received funding and insulated bags, through participation in the Fuel Up To Play 60 Program, which they used to start serving breakfast at their school.
“After a long process of getting our school qualified and participating in the National School Lunch Program last year, we decided to offer breakfast this year. It has been a huge success. The kids are super excited every morning to get their breakfast and be able to make a choice on their own about what they get to eat. The joy we get is to know that as they choose what they want, we get the satisfaction of knowing that it is always a healthy choice and feel that it helps them be more focused in class when they have good food in their tummies. It has been are greatest accomplishment to be able to provide healthy breakfast and lunches to our children.”
