Serving Those In Need

Breakfast Program

Students at all Edgerton Schools can access free breakfast regardless of income.  The Breakfast Club was started many years ago at the Community Elementary School by ECO and local churches.  Breakfast consisting of cereal, juice, and fruit was served Monday, Wednesday, and Friday by volunteers.  In 2010 the Breakfast Club became a daily program instead of being available only three days a week at the Community Elementary School.  In 2009 the Breakfast Program was expanded to provide assistance at Yahara Elementary School and at the Edgerton Middle School.  In January 2013 the program will further expand and assistance will be available at the Edgerton Senior High School.  Breakfast still consists of cereal, juice, and fruit and is available to all students regardless of family income.  Granola bars, juice boxes, and fruit will be available at the High School. Research has shown that a healthy breakfast is a key component to a child’s success in school.  It is very difficult for a child to concentrate on their studies when they are fighting with a grumbling tummy.  ECO can always utilize donated cereal especially cheerios, chex, and sugar cereals (non-nut varieties).   Cereal can be dropped off at the Thrift Store labeled “breakfast club”.
