Foodbank’s School Breakfast Program
Foodbank Queensland supports more than 300 School Breakfast Programs throughout the state, supplying cereal, bread, milk, spreads and fresh fruit to all participating schools. Our mission is to make sure that all Queensland children, regardless of their circumstances, have an equal start in life. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it sets children up to concentrate, learn and be at their best – but unfortunately, not all children are able to start the day with breakfast at home. Eating breakfast means kids have better focus and concentration, improved physical health, and increases attendance and performance at school.
