Students at Blind Brook Middle School in Rye Brook hope to get into the Guinness Book of World Records by eating a really big breakfast to benefit the r Food Pantry in Port Chester.
The Supermarket Company is providing 45 boxes of their Own Brand cereal, milk and juice for the big breakfast on Thursday at 7:40 a.m. at the school at 840 King St.
When the buses arrive at the school, the students will head to the cafeteria, where they will be served cereal with milk and juice by Stop & Shop executives. Principal Patricia Lambert, teachers and Carver Center administrators will be joining in the fun.
About 300 students are hoping to crunch their way to the world title, which was set in the UK with 286 kids in October 2011. The challenge to beat the Guinness Book of World Records’ biggest breakfast was the idea of a group of sixth-graders as part of the community service challenge for the international problem‐solving competition, “Destination Imagination.”
Stop & Shop is donating $5,000 to the Carver Center Food Pantry if the record is set. Carver Center is provides support services to 1,300 underprivileged families in the area.
