Research has shown that children that have a healthy breakfast have higher scores in math and science, make fewer visits to the nurse’s office and tend to have less tardiest and absences.

Waco ISD participates in the National School Breakfast Program (NSBP), enabling all Waco ISD students to free school breakfasts. This program is an initiative of the United States Department of Agriculture.

This year in the second annual Breakfast with the Bears, the Baylor Athletics, Waco ISD Child Nutrition Services and the Texas Hunger Initiative are partnering together to promote school breakfast among elementary students by serving the children their breakfast at school.

The event will return to Cedar Ridge on Nov. 2 at 7:15 a.m. and will expand to Brook Avenue Elementary on Nov. 1 at 7:15 a.m.

This event is just one of many offered by the Baylor Student-Athlete Center for Excellence to give all student athletes a wide range of opportunities for community involvement.
