Spotlight: Andersen United
At Andersen United Community School in Minneapolis, better nutrition facilitated by Hunger Impact Partners helped improve the way breakfasts were delivered. Assistant principal Eric Loichle saw a change in his students right away.
“Kids had more energy and participated more in class,” he said.
“The food carts located in the hallways made it easier for kids to get their hands on nutritious items as opposed to when breakfast was only served in the cafeteria.”
When kids eat a healthy breakfast, they are better nourished to make the most of their day. Schools that serve lunches at free and reduced cost are ideally suited to provide breakfast.
