Whereas, these five school districts have recognized the benefits of school breakfast in helping students get the nutrition they need to learn and succeed in school, perform better on standardized tests, have better attendance, and fewer behavioral issues; and

Whereas, these five school districts leveraged resources and innovations to meet their students' needs and served school breakfast in new and alternate methods such as Breakfast in the Classroom, Grab n' Go, and Second Chance Breakfast; and

Whereas, under the able leadership of school nutrition professionals in Calhoun, Colleton, Darlington, Richland, and Sumter Counties, these school districts have made breakfast options not only healthy, but wholesome, and in compliance with complex nutrition requirements but also appealing to children and teenagers; and

Whereas, these Breakfast Champions have worked tirelessly to promote participation in the breakfast program and to connect hungry children with healthy food; and

Whereas, the members of the House of Representatives take great pleasure in celebrating work of such noble aims and accomplishments which benefits the children of our state. Now, therefore,
