Our award winning Breakfast Box programme!

1 October 2020

Our Breakfast Box programme in partnership with Guy’s & St Thomas’ Charity, has been named the winner of a Silver Award in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

The international Awards honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run. 

In a specially created Covid-19 category which honored exemplary pandemic-specific responses by female-led organistions, over 180 judges were in agreement that the programme was worthy of the Silver spot.

"Great pivot during COVID to still fulfill the charity's mission of serving those in need. It is impressive that School Food Matters was able to switch gears quickly and effectively and provide healthy breakfasts for so many who would otherwise go without food during the extended school closure."

"Congratulations for the energy and commitment to kids health and wellbeing!"

"A great response making sure families were looked after. What an outstanding initiative."
