Fremont Federation of High Schools in Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) – a single campus housing three high schools.
Enrollment & Demographics (2010-11)
- 1,100 students enrolled
- Over 80 percent of enrolled students are eligible for free or reduced price school meals
On March 21, 2011 Fremont Federation launched a Grab n’ Go breakfast model.
- Before the school day begins, all students are invited to pick up bagged breakfasts, which can be eaten in the classroom during the first 15 minutes of first period.
- The model launched with three service locations, including building entrances and high-traffic hallways. There are plans to use additional service locations near the campus gate as weather permits.
- Breakfast is universally free for all students at Fremont Federation. In fact, Oakland Unified School District offers breakfast free-of-charge to all students at all campuses through the Provision 2 option.
Prior to the Grab n’ Go launch, the OUSD Nutrition Services team and the Youth Wellness Advisory Board (a group of Fremont Federation students) worked to secure support from all campus stakeholders, including administrators, teachers, and custodial staff.
The Board will continue to promote the school breakfast program. One example of their peer-driven promotional efforts is shown in the image to the left — a sign encouraging students to participate in school breakfast.

Kudos to OUSD & Fremont Federation for putting breakfast first!
