Since our schools physically closed on March 17, our food service team has been working to provide meals to our students. Did you know that as of this week they prepared over 200,000 meals? This calls for a celebration!
On Wednesday, June 3, the school district recognized and celebrated the hard work of 40 food service employees.
The Butler County Commissioners issued a proclamation at a ceremony. In addition, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank presented a plaque to Emily Brittain Community Partnership and Demonstration School for their exceptional results in the Southwestern Pennsylvania School Breakfast Challenge. The goal of this challenge was to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program throughout our region. Emily Brittain had a 17% increase in School Breakfast participation in October 2019 compared to October 2018.
- Total meals served each day -- more than 2,000
- Total meals served to date -- just over 200,000

- Number of food service employees – about 40

We would like to thank all of our food service employees, our school police officers and the Nutrition Group for making this possible!
