Universal Free Breakfast Program
Greer High School has been selected to participate in the Universal Free Breakfast Program.  This allows breakfast to be served at no charge to all students. There will be no changes to our breakfast service by implementing Universal Free Breakfast. Our menus, meal times and locations will remain the same; the only difference is all students will eat for free. Research shows that students who eat a good breakfast tend to perform better in school, have better attendance, and exhibit fewer behavior problems. In addition, students who eat a good breakfast develop healthy eating habits, visit the school nurse less frequently, and are less likely to be obese. Despite the benefits of breakfast, for a variety of reasons, many kids aren't able to eat a healthy breakfast at home in the morning. Any questions about the Universal Free Breakfast Program may be directed to Cafeteria Manager Christi Mills at 355-5708.
