As March draws to a close, we’re reflecting on our favorite week of the year: National School Breakfast Week! Here are 3 ways that we celebrated in 2022:
- On March 10, 2022, Virginia legislators Senator Todd Pillion and Delegate Israel O’Quinn introduced a joint resolution that celebrated the Commonwealth’s School Breakfast Program and officially recognized March 7-11, 2022 as National School Breakfast Week. Two school nutrition leaders from Senator Pillion’s district, Kathy Hicks from Bristol and Tracy Webster from Wythe, joined us at the Capitol and were recognized by the General Assembly for their tireless commitment to Virginia’s students. Read the resolution here.
- Our team shared our gratitude for the dedicated school nutrition professionals across the Commonwealth in this video, highlighting the importance of school breakfast and the critical role school nutrition professionals play in helping children succeed in and out of the classroom.
- On the last day of National School Breakfast Week, we hosted a breakfast PARTY at this year’s School Nutrition Association Conference in Hampton, Virginia. We used our session to share questions, elevate victories, discuss emerging trends in meal service and marketing, and review Virginia’s breakfast growth over the last decade. We cheered, clapped, celebrated, and reveled in the presence of breakfast experts from around the Commonwealth.
Student excellence starts with access to a morning meal. To all our #HungerHeroes in cafeterias around the Commonwealth: we see you, and we thank you. Now, don’t mind us – we’ll just be over here counting down the days to National School Breakfast Week 2023.
