BREAKFAST PROGRAMS

We all know that hungry children have a more difficult time doing their best work in the classroom. That’s why Jeffco Food and Nutrition services (FNS) wants to encourage all students to begin their school day with a nutritious, great-tasting breakfast.

School breakfast makes good sense – it provides ¼ of your child’s nutritional needs, meets Dietary Guidelines recommendations, and offers children a chance to eat breakfast with their friends. It’s very affordable and many students, possibly yours, already qualify for free breakfast meals.

Thank you for helping us make sure that all of our students start the school day alert, well-nourished and ready to learn. Whether joining us for breakfast or one of our delicious lunch meals, the Jeffco FNS Team wants to say “Thank You” for the opportunity to provide meals to your student(s). We look forward to serving them this school year!
