How it began…
In July 2015 the Kids Breakfast Club program was initiated for schools neighbouring the Melbourne Amma Centre near Carrum Downs, Victoria. In early 2016, working closely with local MP’s to identify those schools in most need; the Kids Breakfast Club was able to add three new schools to the existing five that already had breakfast provided to.
How is it run?
There are currently eight schools participating in the program that runs 2 – 5 mornings a week depending on their respective needs. Approximately 300 primary school students can now have a healthy meal to start their day at school.
How has it been received?
The Kids Breakfast Club has been well received by the community and this project is only possible with the help of volunteers (including school staff and parents).
According to participating schools; the breakfast program has had a range of impact on the students – including better health, educational and social benefits. With a proper nutritious breakfast to start the day, the children are more likely to concentrate in class and therefore have a much better learning experience.
