Self-serve breakfast options expand at high school

Breakfast is getting a boost at Walpole High School with the addition of make-your-own waffles and toast and other self-serve options, according to Maria Hall, director of school nutrition for the district. She said the “more exciting self-serve space” will open next month and she’s hoping it will increase participation in the breakfast program from about 10 to 20 percent of students. “It’s important because, truly, breakfast gives the best start to the day,” she said. Walpole High School received $1,500 from the New England Dairy Council and National Football League to buy the equipment for the self-service upgrades, she said. The school serves breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. The cost is $1.50, with qualifying students getting the food at reduced rates or for free, Hall said.
