Through ‘Food Power for Generation Covid’, a joint initiative with Food Power, another 8,485 breakfasts will help children stay nourished over the half term holidays and ensure they return to school with the energy to learn. Our friends at Abel & Cole have once again generously donated 1.6 tonnes of fresh fruit worth £6,000 to be added to the boxes.
The incredible outpouring of public donations after our Christmas holiday scheme has enabled us to extend the programme even further. We’ve distributed 32,135 breakfasts this week to families in Lambeth and Southwark and 750 to three schools in Wandsworth and Richmond, all funded by People Power. That means thousands more children will be able to enjoy a healthy breakfast over the holidays.
This is part of our Food provision work.
We want every child to have access to nutritious food so that they are well-nourished and ready to learn. That’s why we work with school caterers, headteachers and families to get the best possible food service across the whole school day.
