• In collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), and the North Carolina State Board of Education’s initiative to encourage innovative ways to provide more fruits, grains, and milk to the students enrolled in the Public Schools of North Carolina, a Grab ‘N’ Go Breakfast Program will be implemented for Public Schools of Robeson County students enrolled in grades K-8 beginning on October 1, 2013.  This program will encourage all students to participate in a Universal Free Grab ‘N’ Go Breakfast initiative which means that all students, regardless of income, will be served breakfast at no cost to that student.

     

    With the Grab ‘N’ Go concept, nutritious handheld breakfast items are served in a format that will facilitate quick pick up.  Customizable and non-prescriptive methods can be utilized so that breakfast may be served in a high traffic area (i.e., school bus or carpool drop off, school entrance, or hallway).  Depending on how an individual school selects to customize their program, students can eat breakfast in the cafeteria, classroom or another location designated on the school campus.
