Situation

1 in 3 UK school children regular skip breakfast before school (University of Essex) and 1 in 4 UK school children have one hot meal a day - their school lunch (CPAG). A child may not have a healthy breakfast for a variety reasons, incl. financial, chaotic home life or lack of nutritional awareness. A hungry child is often unable to concentrate, tired or lethargic, disruptive or even ill. A hungry child simply cannot make the most of their education - missing out on future life success.

Solution

We believe no child's should miss out on their education due to being too hungry/malnourished to learn. This project enables us to not only provide free healthy breakfast foods, but also build capacity in the school community to solve the problem now and for good. This involves working closely with schools to create a strong breakfast club which reaches every child who needs it, provides family nutrition education, effectively resourced and able to self-fund without relying on food aid.
