At Breakthrough Charter School, we are committed to our students’ health and wellness. Research shows that healthy students are better able to pay attention in class and better positioned to succeed in school and in life.

The goals of our food program are to:

  • Support the academic success and achievement of our students
  • Provide nutritious meals at no charge which allow students to maintain focus
  • Provide healthy and fresh food offerings along with education on making healthy choices
  • Expose our students to new culinary experiences while still offering “kid favorites”
