Citadel High School has a breakfast program that serves a healthy breakfast to 250 students every day. Starting the day with a healthy breakfast is important for many reasons. Breakfast improves nutritional status and supports healthy living, by providing approximately 25 percent of daily nutrition needs. Studies clearly indicate that a healthy breakfast positively affects student performance. Well-nourished students are ready to learn. They have more energy and are less distracted by hunger. Children and youth spend a large part of their day in school, making schools an important environment to reinforce the connections among nutrition, health and education. The availability of school breakfast programs increase the probability that students will eat breakfast and, in turn, improve their learning.
We would appreciate your consideration in contributing to the breakfast program in one of the following ways:
- Volunteering to help prepare and serve food
- Donating money, it costs approximately $1 per day to feed a child breakfast.
- Donating food products (Whole Grain Cereal, Raisins, Dried Cranberries etc.)
- Providing us with a business and/or community contact that could help with volunteer time, in-kind donations or financial assistance
Thank you for considering this request. Please feel free to contact our office for further information. We look forward to hearing from you.
