Funding for School Breakfast Clubs


Schools and parents were collectively shocked last month when figures were released that one in seven children go to school hungry. That’s a staggering 820,000 children with rumbling tummies every week across Britain, seriously affecting their ability to concentrate in the classroom.

This is mostly due to rising bills that are putting a strain on family’s disposable income – and forcing them into food poverty. Reports found that a large number of parents rely on school meals to help feed their children.

School Fund Finder has taken a great interest in this and we have been working hard to find the best grants for you.  We want to help you make your pupils’ lives better and ease parents’ worries.

Kellogg’s Give a Child a Breakfast

Back for another year, Kellogg’s have teamed up with a UK charity called Forever Manchester to deliver the Help Give a Child a Breakfast campaign.  Grants of up to £400 are available to help you set up a new breakfast club or keep your existing club going.
