Watch for posters in the mail!  

TDA has started mailing colorful School Breakfast Week posters to each Child Nutrition Director, providing sufficient time for distribution to the cafeterias. Please be sure to distribute the correct poster series to the correct campus.

As always, there are three posters to a set and they come in elementary and middle/high school series. These posters do not include SBW dates and are designed to fit in the tri-a-rama three panel ceiling display system; schools may display them other ways if it works better for their students and/or cafeterias or order a new system via the SBW catalog.
