Breakfast at Caruthers Elementary School will include more options after the school district was awarded $8,100 as part of the School Breakfast Program by the California Department of Education.
The school was one of only three in the Central Valley to get funding and one of only 80 out of 9,000 schools in the state. With the funds the school will get a double-stack convection oven to make more hot breakfasts at one time and give the food services staff more options on what to serve.
The grant is available for schools with at least 20% of the students enrolled in the Free and Reduced-Price Meals Program to start or expand a breakfast program.
