March 2-6 is National School Breakfast Week
Posted on 03/04/2015

This is National School Breakfast Week, which recognizes the importance of starting the school day with a nutritious breakfast to help students succeed in school. This year McMinnville schools expects to have served more than 320,000 breakfasts.

This year, the District has offered free lunch and breakfast daily to every student as part of a pilot program sponsored by the federal government. Schools report positive benefits from this program, including better attention in class, fewer tardies and fewer trips to see the school nurse.
