501 Parents started this petition to Topeka public schools

Growing up what did our parents tell us about breakfast “it is the most important meal of the day“ well now Topeka Public schools have taken that meal away from some of our kids, the most important meal of the day!

Covid has stripped so many households of a lot. Some parents are working more than ever, some parents are not working at all, while some are living paycheck to paycheck and some parents are hoping for the next round of stimulus checks to be approved and unemployment to come in. Putting food on the table is hard. What is something your teacher would always tell you to do before you take a test? “ make sure you eat a good healthy breakfast before class tomorrow because  you can’t run on an empty stomach” .

“You can’t run on an empty stomach.” The kids will be focusing on their hunger pains , too tired, and too grouchy to want to learn . So for those that cannot feed their children in the morning , they are going to be sending them to school hungry until the lunch bell rings.   They’re not going to absorb anything that is being said or taught in that classroom. They’re gonna be tired and they are going to be hungry. This is going to affect all children more than most of you will believe.

In addition to it being a struggle for kids to eat at home it is also a struggle for parents to take any more time to prepare a breakfast. I hate to say this but the average working parent goes to work before the child even goes to school these days. Now how in the world are some parents supposed to rush around to get theirselves ready, get their child ready and still prepare a full breakfast meal that is nutritious for them?  That should be offered by the school like it was for us when we were kids. 

Please sign if you believe breakfast should be offered at Topeka Public Schools for our children again!
