School Breakfast Success Stories

West Point Public Schools 

During the 2015-16 school year, West Point Public Schools’ nutrition program worked with SUDIA to increase breakfast participation by introducing reimbursable meal deal yogurt and milk smoothies as a new breakfast menu option.

Schools saw a slight increase in breakfast participation, but there was room to grow. Working with their local SUDIA representative, the school system applied for a Fuel Up to Play 60 School Nutrition Equipment Grant to support an alternative breakfast program utilizing breakfast serving carts and wireless payment tablets.  program was launched at West Point’s middle and high schools in October 2016. Just one month prior to the launch, West Point served only 470 breakfasts a month at the middle and high school level. By the end of October, that number went up to 785 breakfasts served. In November, the school system served 1,060 breakfasts a month to middle and high school students, more than doubling the previous year average of 414 breakfasts a month—a 156 percent increase in breakfast participation.
