HEALTHY BREAKFAST BOXES
Our Breakfast Box project launched last week and so far, over 2,000 children across Lambeth and Southwark have received one of our breakfast boxes, filled with two weeks’ worth of nutritious breakfast foods.
In light of the current situation and school closures, we are working in partnership with Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Charity to deliver COVID-19 support to schoolchildren via our Breakfast Box project. It aims to expand breakfast provision to all families in Lambeth and Southwark who are vulnerable to food insecurity at this time.
We are also working with Chefs in Schools to support provision of nutritious lunches to children from schools that are unable to support through their existing catering team.
Please spread the word to schools in Lambeth and Southwark to get in touch!
