Healthy Food Program

Breakfast in the Classroom
This program provides a free healthy breakfast to all students at BC. As students arrive at school in the morning, they will congregate in the cafeteria until the breakfast bell rings at 7:15 a.m. At that time the students will walk to a grade level classroom. At 7:30 students will eat breakfast in their own classrooms. We are excited to provide the necessary morning fuel to all students so that they may succeed in school!
