Chariho Amp Up CartRecently the Chariho Regional School District was awarded a grant from the New England Dairy & Food Council in order to help boost the sales of milk and dairy items.
At the request of Laurie Weber, principal of Chariho High School, the funds were used to purchase a breakfast cart to be placed in the hallway so that students had access to a breakfast meal on their way to class.
Ms. Weber was an instrumental part of raising awareness that a good breakfast fuels the learning process.
Jeff Powell, FSD at Chariho, reports that breakfast sales have increased three fold and that they are now selling over 100 smoothies per day. “The breakfast cart has been a real enhancement to our program here at Chariho. So much so that we are looking into putting one in the middle school as well.”
