PINE LAWN, Mo. (KMOV.com) - Some students in the Normandy Schools Collaborative district got their day off to the right foot as the school delivered breakfast to them Tuesday morning.
Breakfast was delivered to students at Barack Obama Elementary School. Students will now get breakfast every morning thanks to $107,000 grant awarded to the Normandy School District.
The school breakfast program allows kids to focus on learning instead of empty stomachs.
“I’ll be able to think and my brain power will be stronger,” said 6th grader Zachary Piphus.
Operation Food Search notes that nearly 1 in 5 children in Missouri live in households that struggle with hunger.
