Drew Butler, Arizona Cardinals Punter, served Breakfast in the Classroom to third graders at Papago School this morning as part of National School Breakfast Week sponsored by the Arizona Dairy Council, the Arizona Department of Education Health & Nutrition Services, and the USDA Western Region Office of Health & Nutrition.
Drew then joined students for a healthy breakfast and fielded a wide variety of questions. Breakfast was followed by third graders heading out to the field to exchange passes and punts with Drew Butler.
During the breakfast conversation, students peppered Drew with questions. They wanted to know how old he was, if he was married, and which meal is his favorite.
“Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day,” Drew shared, “because it gives me the energy for exercise and practice.”
Students also asked about the Cardinals playoff chances for next year. Hearing that those chances look good, the student went on to say, “I think I need to request a field trip.”
According to Arizona Department of Education Health and Nutrition Services, over 51.2 million school breakfasts were served at 1650 sites in Arizona during the 2014-2015 school year.
The School Breakfast Program was signed into law in the 1960s and is focused on supporting students starting the day nourished and ready to learn.
All nine Creighton Neighborhood Schools offer Breakfast in the Classroom.
