NORFOLK, Va. – Former First Lady Michelle Obama dedicated her time in the White House to getting kids to eat healthy, and now Virginia’s head of state is visiting Hampton Roads to do the same.

Governor Terry McAuliffe and First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe visited Suburban Park Elementary School in Norfolk Wednesday morning to celebrate the 10 millionth meal served since the inception of the No Kid Hungry initiative.

During their visit, the Governor and First Lady joined Norfolk Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Melinda J. Boone in handing out breakfast to students. They also spoke at a brief assembly about the importance of school breakfast programs across the region and the state.

Suburban Park Elementary participates in “Breakfast After the Bell,” a program that increases access to school breakfast by bringing breakfast out of the cafeteria and making it a part of the school day.
