Kannapolis City Schools a ‘Breakfast Champion’

KANNAPOLIS — The Kannapolis City school system’s child nutrition department was one of 22 school districts in North Carolina to receive the Breakfast Champion Award.
The award was presented to Anne Treanor, the district’s director of child nutrition during the Child Nutrition Administrator Conference in Raleigh.
Districts receiving the Breakfast Champion Award were recognized for their outstanding commitment to increasing breakfast participation by offering a breakfast program outside of the typical cafeteria service type model.
Their programs go above and beyond to try to get as many students as possible eating a healthy breakfast to start their day.
By expanding breakfast programs to include such services as universal breakfast, grab-and-go breakfast carts and breakfast in the classroom, these districts have increased total breakfast participation.
In Kannapolis, breakfast participation has not only gone up but has increased by more than 40 percent.
In addition, A.L. Brown High School has doubled its breakfast participation in 2012-2013 by expanding breakfast initiatives beyond the cafeteria.
Kannapolis is one of only a few districts in North Carolina that provides the universal breakfast program district-wide, which means the school system offers a free breakfast to every child in KCS every school day.
