Four high schools hoping to get more students into the school cafeteria for breakfast.
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools will introduce coffee carts into the cafeteria during the breakfast period at Atkins, Carver, Reagan and West Forsyth high schools. The school system is partnering with local small-batch coffee roaster Krankies to provide hot and cold coffee options for students.
Students will have two options at the coffee carts: a 12-ounce cup of traditional hot, drip coffee or a 16-ounce iced coffee. The iced coffee will be pre-mixed with skim milk and Splenda to control nutritional values, which still have to comply with federal smart snack regulations. Students will have three options for sugar-free flavored syrups.
The district encouraged Krankies to develop logo cups, something school officials hope will carry cachet with high school students. The school district will buy Krankies’ beans wholesale and sell the coffee, putting the proceeds back into the child nutrition program.
