Parents rallied today at LAUSD to save a beloved school program, which ensures that low-income students eat healthy meals before learning. The high energy event, which featured the launch of the "Parent Breakfast Club," brought cameras from KCBS, Univision, Telemundo and more. Parents, as well as principals and community groups, said the issue is about more than breakfast — it's a matter of poverty and civil rights. United Way is proud to support their efforts to protect this vital program that makes sure kids are fed. Next week, the school board will vote on whether to cut "Breakfast in the Classroom" in response to complaints by some teachers' union leaders.
