Classroom hunger impacts significantly on educational attainment. Children from deprived backgrounds come to school hungry having had no breakfast at home. Our Magic Breakfast by Peace Train project provides nutritious breakfasts which include bagels, porridge, cereals and orange juice in school.
Our work is not done in school alone. During school breaks, many children suffer due to missing out on the food they would have gotten at school. So our breakfast provisions run all year-round. We provide Holiday Packs of breakfast for children to take home during school holidays.
Working with our partner Magic Breakfast, we are currently supporting eight schools, averaging approximately 800 children a month, with our year-round breakfast support package:
Hugh Myddleton Primary – London
Shaftesbury Primary – London
Marlborough Road Academy - Salford
Ark Kings Academy - Birmingham
Thorney Close Primary - Sunderland
Simms Cross Primary – Widnes
Ranworth Square Primary – Liverpool
Clydebank High School – West Dunbartonshire, Scotland
