Most Minnesotans know Super Bowl LII will be at the US Bank Stadium in 2018, but what has that got to do with breakfasts in the school?
Earlier this week, Worthington (my hometown) High School was host to a grant dedication ceremony to thank a whole host of groups (Midwest Dairy Council, Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee, Fuel Up To Play 60, and General Mills) for supporting this great cause, Super School Breakfast grants.
Here’s the deal: the school will receive some snazzy stainless steel breakfast carts that will make it much faster and easier for the students to “grab and go” breakfast. Also, local dairy farmers sponsored some additional milk coolers. The idea is that if a school breakfast is convenient and tasty, they will eat it — and it will help them to perform better in school. Makes a lot of sense to me.
This is one of the first of weekly celebrations like this throughout Minnesota. All told, about 140,000 school-age students will benefit from this partnership, and I definitely think that it will leave a lasting legacy!
