Growing School Breakfast Across Georgia

The Dairy Alliance's Interim CEO Molly Szymanski attended the National School Breakfast Week and State-wide Challenge kickoff event as a representative of The Dairy Alliance and our partnership on the state team's school breakfast campaign. This was the first of 3 celebrations that will take place during the state-wide school breakfast challenge through the end of April where over 500 schools are participating in the challenge to increase access to school breakfast and nutrient-rich foods. First Lady Marty Kemp, State Superintendent Richard Woods, State Nutrition Director Linette Dodson and Marietta City Schools Nutrition Director and Superintendent were also a part of the celebration, with the 6th Grade Academy in Marietta City Schools hosted the event. Their Grab and Go breakfast was highlighted on their "Nutrition on the Go" bus as a representation of a successful model for other schools to increase breakfast participation. Team partners shared resources and nutrition information at the event, along with fun activities to share with students.
