The article reports that breakfast participation at the Purchase Line School District's junior/high school doubled this year since foodservice officials began offering grab-and-go breakfast meals to students just steps away from where they exit their school buses. The program has been an early morning boon, since the cafeteria seats only about 200 in the 560-student school and students have a scant 15 minutes to eat breakfast. Nearly 60 percent of students receive free or reduced-priced meals.
