Pulaski County School Nutrition is pleased to announce the Virginia Breakfast Challenge. The event began October 1st and will end December 31, 2017. Breakfast participation is important every day, and during the challenge each school has an opportunity to win some very nice prizes.

Did you know that eating breakfast at school can help your child start the day off ready to learn AND save you time in the morning? Breakfast is offered to ALL students every morning. And the price is only $1.25 for Paid Price Breakfast! Students who qualify for reduced-price lunch eat breakfast at No Cost. Students who eat free lunch can also eat breakfast for free

We know how busy mornings can be – why not leave breakfast to us?  Together, we’ll make sure our children are ready to succeed, every day.
