Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club was started to encourage students to eat breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Since its inception, it has taken on the social aspects of students starting their day by sharing a bowl of cereal. Breakfast Club has encouraged camaraderie and fellowship, and has even made floats for the annual Homecoming Parade.  This year we will emphasize fundraising for charity to follow the course of our founders.  Check out pancakes for poverty.com
