School increases breakfast participation rate 71%

NORWAY — Guy E. Rowe Elementary School was recently named a top-six finisher in the Full Plates Full Potential challenge.
The school increased its breakfast participation rate by 71 percent, which is credited to the school’s recent switch to offering breakfast to all students in the classroom.

The school served 708 additional breakfasts the week of March 7 to 11.

Michelle Lamm, Preble Street Maine Hunger Initiative program manager and Full Plates Full Potential Breakfast Subcommittee chairwoman, presented a $500 check to the school for its nutrition program.
