Our Governor and Jeff Bridges Have Breakfast With Darby Students

DARBY -

It's not every day a third grader gets to have breakfast with the governor and a movie star.

Earlier this morning, Governor Bullock and actor Jeff Bridges enjoyed a meal with a group of Darby school kids.

The cooks are here in the kitchen of Darby School every morning at 6:30 whipping up more than 200 breakfasts through the Universal Breakfast Program. And after a successful two years, that program caught the attention of some big names.

Bullock says, "We're here at Darby today because Darby is showing the state of Montana, and actually the entire country, how it's done."

The Governor and first lady Lisa Bullock say they've made childhood hunger and food insecurity top priorities in Montana.

To highlight Darby's innovative breakfast program, Governor Bullock and Jeff Bridges enjoyed egg casserole and toast while visiting with the third graders.

Bridges is the spokesperson for No Kid Hungry, Share Our Strength. It's a national program dedicated to feeding kids in school and teaching families to make healthy meals on a budget.

Bridges says he was impressed by Darby's school's creative menu, which integrates locally-grown produce and homemade recipes.

 

Third grade teacher, Kerrie Holmes, says she's seen a big change in her students' performance since the school launched the breakfast program.

School officials say they hope to feed more children every year as the program continues.
