An effort to educate parents and the public about the new HISD program to serve a free breakfast to every child in their classroom.
The First Class Breakfast Program is being implemented in schools all over Houston. I am a very involved parent, but I have only one experience to share and one point of view. In an effort to share information and inform parents, I welcome comments and guest posts!
Forward this to all who might be interested. You need to be informed and aware of what is happening in your schools.

First Class Breakfast - Day 3
Today's breakfast had some problems. Ham and Cheese Sandwich, Animal crackers, juice and milk. The lack of considerations for religious diet concerns became evident today. Many, many meals were discarded without opening because of the ham. Only later were teachers told that it was actually turkey ham. Really? Is there such a thing?
Anyway, much the same result. Lots of perfectly good food, thrown away. This photo below is the unopened leftovers (trash) from just 2 classes.
Total food discards from all 5 Kinder classes (about 75-80 kids):
There has to be some other answer than throwing all this food in the trash!
I promise I won't publish personal information without your permission, but please include your name, grade of your child and the school they attend, just so information can be verified or followed up on if necessary.
