We visited Becky on a brisk September morning to see how this new breakfast item was going over with her students. We were thrilled to find many kids taking the muffins and loving them! One student said the muffins were better than his mom's! We couldn't ask for higher praise than that :)
The goal of this baking program is to incorporate more local, freshly made foods into school breakfast. Not only will this help us increase our local food purchasing and elevate the quality of our breakfast to match our local, healthy lunches, but it will also give our students long lasting energy to perform well in school.
We hope to expand this program as the year goes on, so stay tuned for updates! The next school to begin preparing local muffins is Barry Elementary!
