Gov. Mark Dayton will serve breakfast to elementary school children Wednesday in Coon Rapids, as a way to highlight the $4 million in new money that the state has earmarked for school breakfasts and lunches.
And handing food to little kids won’t look bad for the governor’s reelection campaign, either.
The governor, along with state Sen. Alice Johnson and Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius, will be on the serving line at 9:10 a.m. at Morris Bye Elementary School in Coon Rapids.
Supporters say the new school food money, approved by the Legislature and signed by the governor, will provide healthy meals for 125,000 more Minnesota students.
