The "Grab and Go" breakfast program at Delong Middle School offers students a quick way to get their first meal of the day. The program is designed to encourage more students to eat breakfast every morning.

"Studies have found that students that eat breakfast are more able to concentrate better in class," says Sue Brown, the kitchen manager. "They're less likely to be sick or have to go to the office because they're sick. They're less likely to cause behavior problems in class or have behavior issues in class."

Brown calls the program a success, which started this school year. Last month, an average of 200 students ate breakfast, which is 50 more than February of last year.

"Grab and Go" is funded through a Herbert Kohl Breakfast Grant.
