Carlos Quintanilla connects the former Mayor of Dallas with the community and encourages Hispanic kids to eat breakfast which is the most important meal of the day.
Chanting in unison, "We want classroom breakfast!" more than 1,000 children ate breakfast together Saturday morning at a rally sponsored by Accion America. The rally kicked off an effort to promote healthy eating habits among the fast growing Hispanic population of Texas and raise awareness about the benefits of Breakfast in the Classroom programs. Attending the rally were kids from 60 soccer teams, parents, representatives from school districts throughout Texas.
