Students at two high schools will have a new way to get their breakfast in the mornings that started on the first day of school. Mission Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) Child Nutrition Program (CNP) is excited to announce Breakfast on the Go at Mission High School and Veterans Memorial High School. The Breakfast on the Go will provide students with several stations throughout the campus where they can grab their breakfast and go to their next class. This breakfast option will start at 9:05 a.m. and runs until 9:20 a.m.
Students will not be required to stop and input their identification information so it will make the process a whole lot quicker. The breakfast is also being offered during a time when most of the students are already on campus and are able to take advantage of grabbing breakfast.
“We are always looking for ways to improve our services and we also value student feedback in order to provide them with options they would enjoy,” states Child Nutrition Director Rosy Woodrum. “The goal is to get more students to eat breakfast because it improves concentration for learning.”
CNP is hoping to reach more students with the Breakfast on the Go. Currently they are servicing on average about 800 students when they come to the cafeteria to eat but with this new concept they hope to double that number.
“Many students are not hungry first thing in the morning and with the Breakfast on the Go stations set up down campus hallways will provide them an opportunity to eat breakfast just a little later,” states Woodrum.
Mission High School will have a total of 18 stations throughout the campus while Veterans Memorial High School will have 16 stations. Specialty items will also be available for anyone that may have any food item restrictions or allergies. Band and athletic students will also be provided the Breakfast on the Go concept at their regular time and location.
