School district sees success with breakfast in the classroom

Jefferson County (Ky.) is one of five districts nationwide to take part in the Breakfast in the Classroom program.

Jan. 8—Cochran Elementary is one of 19 public schools in Jefferson County (Ky.) taking part in the national Breakfast in a Classroom program — a joint initiative of the Food Research and Action Center, the National Association of Elementary School Principals Foundation, National Education Association Health Information Network and the School Nutrition Foundation.

The program began last school year at five school districts across the country with a $5 million grant from the Walmart Foundation—and last fall, expanded to 10 more districts, including Jefferson County, which received a $208,000 foundation grant to start the program.
