Breakfast Vending Machines

The Nutrition Department is pleased to announce the arrival of a brand new breakfast vending machine!  This vending machine will be located at the main doors in the back of the building and will dispense full breakfasts at no charge to the students.  The students simply enter their birthday and student ID number and then select which breakfast they desire, then can enjoy it in their first class.  We are really counting on the students to be responsible and careful to clean up any mess they may make while eating, and not to eat near their Chromebooks or other electronic equipment.  
Of course, the students can still come to the cafeteria and select their breakfast, this is just another way that HB is making breakfast available to everyone.  Cash is not accepted in this machine, and only one breakfast per day per student will be dispensed.  We are also urging all students with a food allergy to continue to come to the cafeteria and get their lunch from the staff so that they can ensure they are eating foods that are safe for them.
The machine will be available to use on Monday, November 28.  It will be on every school day from 7:00am until 8:30am.  Please look for a Nutrition Department staff member to be available to assist the students during the first week of its operation.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Stacey Buchanan, cafeteria manager at 302.239.3425.
