HUNGRY KIDS NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Foodbank’s School Breakfast Program vital for hungry children
Did you know, on average, three children in every Queensland classroom arrive at school without breakfast? When a child goes to school hungry and without proper nutrition, there’s much more at stake than just empty tummies, their entire education can be put at risk.
Foodbank Queensland is focused on supporting the thousands of children returning to school from low-income, vulnerable families. Our mission is to make sure that all Queensland children, regardless of their circumstances, have an equal start in life.
A nutritious breakfast is proven to improve attention, memory, behaviour, and attendance, which all leads to happier and healthier children. Foodbank Queensland’s School Breakfast Program provides fresh, healthy breakfasts for thousands of children every week who would have otherwise gone without.
Unfortunately, not all children are able to start the day with breakfast at home. James is one of these children, in desperate need of support.
Like many kids across Queensland, James often goes to school hungry. After a difficult year, James’s parents are struggling to put food on the table. James tries his best, but he finds it difficult to concentrate in class when all he can feel is his tummy rumbling.
Foodbank Queensland’s School Breakfast Program, running in over 300 Queensland schools, is vital for so many kids like James.
Eating breakfast helps kids like James thrive.
