Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC) provides a free breakfast during Homeroom to all Palms students. The program began in Spring 2014.
The Breakfast in the Classroom program is separate from the free and reduced-priced lunch program. No applications are necessary and breakfast is provided to ALL students. Students do not have to qualify for a free breakfast; all students are eligible regardless of their Title I status.
To accommodate Breakfast in the Classroom, the day begins with a 16-minute Homeroom. Between Period 2 and Period 3 is be a Break period where food is not served. Food is served and consumed during Lunch period. See the Bell Schedule.
BIC is a program of the LAUSD Food Services Division, the Los Angeles Fund for Public Education, California Food Policy Advocates, the LA County Department of Public Health's Choose Health LA Initiative, and community partners.
What's for Breakfast?
Each week there are two Hot Food Days and three days of cold items. Milk, juice, and fruit are served daily. Entrées are nourishing and easy to eat quickly and include popular breakfast items such as cold cereal, blueberry muffins and granola bars. On Hot Food Days, a hot entrée such as a breakfast burrito is served. Menus avoid sticky items such as syrup and jams.
