Coffee with your Cap'n Crunch?

Brazil's Coffee Industry Association (Abic) is looking for 50 roasters to launch a pilot "Adopt-a-School" program, feeding breakfast to 1 million Brazilian school children aged six to 18.

The plan matches a roaster with a school of at least 500 students, providing the kids with a free breakfast of coffee, milk and bread; the estimated cost per school is 33,500 reais (US$15,000).

In Brazilian coffee-growing regions, children traditionally drink coffee from an early age.

Now *I'm* wondering if I can get Tim Horton's to adopt me :)

as always,
