To celebrate 20 years of supporting school breakfast clubs, Kellogg’s has awarded Isaac Newton School, Chapel St Leonards School, Greenfields Academy and Woodlands Academy £1,000 each to enhance their club’s and help feed children in the morning.
The schools were selected to receive this boost as Kellogg’s announce they are to double their investment in breakfast clubs in 2019 as more and more schools struggle to find the budget to fund this service for their pupils.
Breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre-school care. 68 per cent of teachers believe pupils would struggle to concentrate in class without their breakfast club, according to Kellogg’s research.
Peter Bell, CEO at C.I.T, said: “We are very grateful to Kellogg’s for these generous donations. This has meant the schools have since been able to purchase various breakfast products for their clubs.
The funding also helps sustain school breakfast club services, so that we can continue to support our pupils and their families. Thanks again, to Kellogg’s.”
Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility manager, at Kellogg’s, said “We’re proud to have spent 20 years supporting so many schools across the UK. We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, and we know that equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself.”
Kellogg’s has supported 3,000 school breakfast clubs with funds, food and training over the last 20 years – that’s 70 million bowls of cereal to children all over the UK since 1998.
