A former Buffalo Bill and advocate for children's health will unveil a new school breakfast system.
Thurman Thomas, a former running back with the Buffalo Bills, will join with other health advocates Wednesday morning to introduce a new way for school children to get breakfast. Thomas is heading to Charles Carroll School No. 46 in Rochester for a demonstration of a"hot and cold" food cabinet that service workers can take from classroom to classroom, delivering breakfast.
The "Cambro Cart" easily transports foods to each room, and because it can maintain food temperatures, it will let schools present more options for hungry kids.
Thomas will be joined by children's health advocate and national nutrition expert Dayle Hayes to gather information for her work with federal and state agencies on improving healthy nutrition in schools.
Wednesday's presentation begins at 8 a.m. at Charles Carroll School No. 46 on Newcastle Road.
