Breakfast as a part of the morning school day is a great way to reach students who do not have the opportunity to eat before school. Every morning*, free breakfast will be served in the classrooms of Liberty Elementary and Middle School and in the cafeteria of Liberty High School.
Nutritious meals are planned in a one-month cycle. They include a hot or cold entrée, juice or fruit, and milk. Menu modifications are available for children with a documented medical condition. Requests for special diets should be initiated with the school nurse. Documentation from a licensed physician may be required. Students are not forced to participate; they do not have to take a meal.

Breakfast is packed in an insulated rolling bag and are delivered from the cafeteria area by food service staff and taken into each classroom. Placemats are put on each student’s desk. Each food item, along with plastic silverware and hand wipes are placed on each desk. All students are given the opportunity to enjoy breakfast quietly at their desks while the teacher conducts attendance and morning announcements are announced. Dry disposable towels will be available for any spills and moist towels will be available to clean desks. Trash and food bags are removed and collected by food service staff when breakfast is over (10-15 minutes). Meals will not be available after first period.
