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.
