Browns, Arby's team up to provide "Leader Lunches" across Cleveland Metropolitan School District classrooms

The Leader Lunches provided free lunches to students recognized for their hard work and dedication to school attendance


The Browns were proud to partner with Arby's to provide one lucky Cleveland Metropolitan School District classroom with a surprise "Leader Lunch" from Arby's each month throughout the 2023-23 school year as part of the Stay in the Game! Network.

Eight classrooms over the school year were recognized for their hard work and dedication to school attendance, awarding a total of 280 Arby's meals. To highlight the partnership, Browns WR Michael Woods II surprised students at Oliver H. Perry Elementary School as they celebrated the end of the school year. Students heard about the importance of showing up to school every day from Michael, who also read a few of his favorite books before enjoying their lunch from Arby's.

As a member of the Stay in the Game! Network, CMSD receives support from the Cleveland Browns Foundation to support student attendance initiatives, including a community-wide campaign, with a shared goal of increasing school attendance across the district. The Arby's Foundation is also a long-time supporter of the Cleveland Browns Foundation and the Stay in the Game! Network and recently awarded a $110,000 grant to the Network to support attendance interventions and the creation of Stay in the Game! rooms at partner school districts.
