New bag breakfast program a hit with Scranton students

Grabbing bagged breakfast has increased participation by 20%.

Breakfast is served, and not just in the cafeteria anymore.

Each morning, the children at John F. Kennedy Elementary School have a choice: play outside with friends or eat breakfast in the cafeteria before school starts.

Now, as part of a pilot program in the Scranton School District, students have the option of grabbing a bag off a cart and eating outside.

In the last two weeks, the Aramark program has already increased breakfast participation at the school by 20 percent.
