Teachers of the Monterey County Office of Education Early Head Start and Head Start programs are having hard time to carrying out the process of separating food for children at their centers. Since, it is interfering with their teaching time, they are asking to find a solution to resolve this problem because they only have four hours to fulfill the Head Start program requirements. This report explains the process of a pilot project that was implemented in one of the Head Start centers during the months of April and May. This project consisted in taking food to centers already separated, so teachers will have more time to teach their children. Even though this project will not be implemented to the 2017- 2018 school year due to insufficient funds of the Head Start program, it is encouraged to be implemented it in the future.
