The most important meal of the day may be the perfect starting point for the beginning of a day trip, a one-week vacation, or the entire summer at the Jersey Shore. There are many who make it a ritual to grab their favorite breakfast grub before hitting the strand or checking in at the rental. And while dining out for breakfast certainly isn't unique to the Shore, the quest to return to a beloved spot for it summer after summer may be, according to Debbie Howarth, an associate professor of sales and marketing at Johnson and Wales University's School of Hospitality in Providence, R.I. Howarth, who grew up going "down the Shore," calls New Jersey "one of the greatest melting pots in the United States . . . where every culture has their ties to food and family.

Ovaltine and Space Food Sticks, for example. The era that is ending - the Lou Mitchell era - hasn't necessarily been the golden age of the American breakfast. The last 66 years have brought us Pop Tarts, Count Chocula and Tang, and an alarming number of complete meals are housed entirely within soggy English muffins presented in foam coffins. Yet through it all, Lou Mitchell has prospered, for he has the desire and he has the touch. "We do a sweet business," says the 79-year-old restaurateur.

PHILLY is increasingly known as a vegan-forward town, with places in most neighborhoods where you can enjoy an animal-free dinner or lunch. But what about breakfast? Recently, a friend staying in town overnight asked for a good weekday vegan breakfast spot, and I was stumped. Partly that's because I tend to be at my house at breakfast time, and partly it's because breakfast flies under the radar: You don't think about it that much until you really need it. I posed the question on the Web and got some great info from fellow vegans and "vegan-friendlies.

Five months after a stolen bulldozer rammed into the front of the Piston Diner, crushing a fourth of the building, the restaurant reopened this week under new management and a new menu item: The bulldozer breakfast special. Police are still searching for the person who hot-wired the bulldozer at a nearby construction site March 6 and then rammed it into the building on Route 130 in Westville. But on Tuesday, patrons happily munched on the signature sandwich - a steak, egg, and cheese on a toasted torpedo bun - and exchanged hugs with the new owners, who formerly managed the now-closed Brooklawn Diner.

In all of the excitement of planning for the Big Meal, it's easy to forget that there's a houseful of people - visiting relatives, home-from-college kids, and assorted other hangers-on - expecting to be fed on the days leading up to and after the holiday. Stocking the pantry and freezer with these guests in mind can avert those last-minute scrambles to get something on the table. One of the challenges of feeding family and friends during the holiday season is knowing how to walk the line between celebratory and indulgent.

STOP THE WORLD You could call this group people who don't need people. It's the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT), pronounced "vehement," which favors the eventual phasing out of people, by unspecified methods. Fortune magazine reports that VHEMT acknowledges that the idea may give many people pause but says that "if you'll give the idea a chance . . . you might agree that the extinction of Homo sapiens would mean survival for millions if not billions of other earth-dwelling species.

The housekeeper of the 1920s had it made. No longer did she need to polish her stove regularly with black graphite. Treatments with special cleansing oil were all that were needed to keep her modern stove rust-free. Her new refrigerator had a seamless lining, freeing her from the daily chore of scrubbing the icebox with boiling water so food wouldn't accumulate in the seams. Her linoleum floors needed only weekly waxing; her family's mattresses, just a weekly turning.

When her husband, Jules, died last January, Barbara Dellostretto Pilch took over the Hatboro menswear store that bears his name. Today, she is president of Jules Pilch Menswear, which will mark its 45th anniversary on Sunday. The store on South Old York Road (Route 263) has expanded three times since it opened and now employs 15 people. Pilch, 48, a Pittsburgh native, joined the store's staff in 1974 and worked alongside her husband for nearly 25 years. "I learned how to run the business his way, watching him," she said.

A statewide effort to get more students to eat breakfast is yielding surprisingly positive results. In a recent contest, Philadelphia's Feltonville School of Arts and Sciences, a middle school, beat out 900 other Pennsylvania schools in the so-called School Breakfast Challenge. The school on East Courtland Street in North Philadelphia achieved the largest increase in breakfast participation in the state, improving from 29 percent of students in October 2013 to an average of 77 percent during January through March of this year.

The breakfast menu at the Oregon Diner on Friday was hard feelings, over easy as the vanquished Democratic candidates for governor met with winner Tom Wolf and party leaders in a unity ritual. U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, state Treasurer Rob McCord, and Katie McGinty, the former state environmental secretary, and Wolf talked and noshed along with former Gov. Ed Rendell, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, and U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, chairman of the city party. No grand communiques emerged, just a reaffirmation that everybody wants to beat Republican Gov. Corbett this fall.

TRENTON New Jersey legislators are pushing to expand access to school breakfast programs in an effort to stem hunger and improve focus in the classroom among the state's youth. An Assembly panel advanced legislation Monday that would require more public schools to offer breakfast. Another bill would encourage school districts and nonpublic schools to serve breakfast in first-period class. The legislative effort comes as more students have become eligible for school breakfast programs, and low-income families have lost assistance from the federal government because of a reduction in food stamp funding.

New Jersey has shown marked increases in getting low-income children to eat breakfast in school, while Pennsylvania has demonstrated slow improvement in serving the meals. That's the word from the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), which released its School Breakfast Scorecard this month. Based in Washington, FRAC is the leading antihunger advocacy group in America. Throughout the country, school-breakfast participation by low-income students is calculated by measuring the number of children eating breakfast compared with those eating lunch.

The blueberry muffins are Calvin Bell's favorites, but Monday's apple muffins, plus accompanying pears, clearly hit the spot for the Camden sixth grader and his classmates, who were tucking into their school-provided breakfasts served up during homeroom. "A-OK," was Calvin's verdict. "Delicious. " Last year, his school, Camden's D.U.E. Season Charter School, greatly increased the number of students served the morning meal, according to a new report, by turning to "breakfast after the bell" - offering free and reduced-priced breakfast after the school day's start instead of before it. Calvin, 11, gave the practice a thumbs-up, too. "When you don't eat, you concentrate on your stomach," he said.

As the leisurely rhythms of summer give way to the more frantic routines of fall, those responsible for feeding a family have the challenge of navigating mealtimes around multiple schedules. I have always felt, and research bears out, that sitting down to eat, even for a few minutes, is better than eating in front of the fridge, or in the backseat of the car. Sit-down meals with others promote better eating habits, better relationships, and even better grades. So how can a busy family manage to eat healthy home-cooked meals here in the real world of competing priorities and overfilled schedules?

CAN YOU believe it? Summer is gone and another school year is upon us! While many of us parents are scrambling to lock down new wardrobes, bus schedules and school supplies for our kids, there's one more thing we need to put on the table, literally: breakfast. Breakfast not only helps kids (and adults) maintain a healthy weight, it also gives schoolchildren a cognitive boost, increasing concentration, memory, test scores and even attendance. Countless studies have proved the importance of eating breakfast.
