Breakfast for every student at Eisenhower High School in Rialto

At the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, on August 5, Eisenhower High School rolled out its Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC) program. Since then, the school has gone from serving 400 meals per day, to serving 2,000 meals – during breakfast alone. The BIC program has received much critical acclaim from local dignitaries, district superintendents and the community. “Breakfast in the Classroom provides every student at Eisenhower High School a quick breakfast at the beginning of second period, every day of the week,” said Kristina Kraushaar, program innovator for Rialto Child Nutrition. Every morning each second period class has a designated student who is responsible to go and grab the prepared breakfast cart. “We’re bringing the cafeteria to the classroom. The rolling cart consists of one red bag and one blue bag. One of the bags is filled with the main meal item and the other is filled with the drinks,” continued Kraushaar.
