PSA: Deming Intermediate School Breakfast after the Bell

Starting Tuesday October 15, 2019, Deming Intermediate School will be implementing Breakfast after the Bell (BATB). Breakfast after the Bell is a legislative approved program that has helped feed thousands of New Mexico children since its inception in 2011. Beginning in the school year 2019-2020, the operative statutory provision directs schools participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) with a free/reduced percentage of 85 percent or greater, must offer a breakfast at no charge to each student after the instructional day has begun.

Benefits of Breakfast after the Bell;

2. Helps combat childhood hunger.
3. Increases the number of children eating breakfast at and on school days.
4. Increases the consumption of nutritious foods.
