Breakfast After The Bell
Childhood hunger continues to be a serious problem in Montana, one that is especially challenging in rural communities. Hungry stomachs make it hard to focus in school, which can have life-long consequences for students.
This series of 3 shorts — produced by past or current female AmeriCorps members serving with Montana No Kid Hungry — explores how food programs have impacted three Montana school districts: In rural, struggling Poplar, a school successfully implements a new project to feed breakfast to every student. Wibaux’s “breakfast champions” are changing students’ lives with their new system of Grab ‘n Go options, and in Butte, an innovation in school breakfast policy changes how the entire community lives, learns, and eats together.
