Dairy farmer Tasha Stein of LeRoy, New York, joined ADA North East on Wednesday at Rochester School #43 to celebrate the school district’s Breakfast After the Bell program launch on World School Milk Day and New York School Breakfast Day. Initiated by ADA North East, the breakfast program offers Breakfast in the Classroom to provide students access to healthy breakfasts that include dairy.
Former Buffalo Bills player Brian Moorman joined Tasha in delivering milk and dairy treats to the students in the classroom. Research proves that students who start their day off with a healthy breakfast perform better academically and behaviorally.
In addition to their coverage of the celebration, Spectrum News interviewed Tasha Stein asking her about chocolate milk in schools.
