In 2017-2018, Midwest Dairy provided support to the Webb City School District in Webb City, Missouri, to introduce breakfast programs which would give students greater access to a nutritious morning meal including dairy. Within the school year, three schools in the district launched Grab N’ Go Breakfast and Breakfast in the Classroom programs, which resulted in an increase in school meal participation and more than 75,000 incremental pounds of milk sold.
According to Dina Winningham, Webb City School District foodservice director, the program has proven to be a success.
“Since we implemented our new breakfast programs, we’ve seen meal participation numbers skyrocket. This means more students are getting the nutrition they need to start their school day.” – Dina Winningham
