The Philadelphia School District has introduced a new breakfast item created by students to be offered in schools throughout the city. The item, called Rebel Crumbles, is a hearty and nutritious breakfast cake packed with fruit and whole grains to give students a healthier food option to make it through the morning.  

The cake was made by Rebel Ventures, a student-run business that has partnered with the University of Pennsylvania’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships. The students come from Bartram, Parkway West and Sayre High Schools, and Mastery Charter School–Shoemaker Campus. They are mentored by Jarrett Stein, co-founder and executive director of Rebel Ventures, and Penn students.
