ENC-Teacher Exchange presents
"Breakfast in Dallas Classrooms"

Park Ridge, Illinois, March 11, 2013--Having dedicated the past year to stories about "preventing obesity" in America's schools, ENC-Teacher Exchange shifted this month to the equally challenging endeavor of feeding America's hungry children in a new video story "Breakfast in Dallas Classrooms."

The school board for the Dallas Independent School District recently voted unanimously to provide breakfast to all of its 157,000 K thru 12th grade students.  And by providing breakfast to students as they arrive in their first period classroom, the program ensures that everyone, regardless of financial need, receives the same nourishing meal to "start their day learning."  

Dallas ISD is one of 15 school districts nationwide incorporating the classroom-based breakfast into every student's day, a campaign that has been led since 2010 by the not-for-profit "Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom."

ENC-Teacher Exchange was introduced in January 2012 by
Egg Nutrition Center (ENC), science division of The American Egg Board in Park Ridge, Ill.  Egg Nutrition Center’s contribution to America’s efforts to encourage better nutrition and more physical activity in schools is now expressed in two ways:  
  • Showcasing teachers and schools that have created successful programs for combating obesity
  • Highlighting school districts that aggressively support feeding the hungry
  • Encouraging teachers to create and submit new ideas so that other teachers can learn and benefit from them. 
Health, nutrition and physical education teachers in all 134,000 U.S. schools are invited to become members of ENC-Teacher Exchange, whereby they’ll receive E-mail notification when new video stories or teaching tools are added.  Click here for easy online application.

ENC-Teacher Exchange is supported by The American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (aafcs.org).   More than 800 AAFCS members are currently enrolled. 

K thru 12 teachers are invited to submit new ideas--specifically concepts that help prevent obesity in schools--to ENC-Teacher Exchange, with the understanding that concepts must be developed by teachers into practical teaching tools that can be shared with other teachers in order to qualify for a $500 honorarium.  New teaching tools must be worthy of publication on the ENC-Teacher Exchange web site to merit the honorarium.  That process usually requires a teacher to begin by sending a one-page concept description to
