£200 towards Feeding Birkenhead’s school breakfast programme

1
Mar

Might I please thank local residents for the generosity and support they have shown yet again for Feeding Birkenhead?

Following our recent appeal, residents have donated £200 towards Feeding Birkenhead’s school breakfast programme.

This will enable ten of our schools – each pallet costs £20 – to offer porridge, muesli, tea, fruit drinks and fruit snacks each morning for those children who might otherwise start lessons on an empty stomach.

All of the food, which has become surplus in supermarkets’ supply chains, would have gone to waste had it not been rescued by a charity called His Church which supplies Feeding Birkenhead’s projects.

We have already worked with His Church to set up a supply of free breakfast cereals for twelve schools, but this latest gesture of goodwill will enable us to add a wider, healthier range of products to those breakfasts.

One of the schools to have set up a breakfast club as part of this initiative works with particularly vulnerable children.

Since linking up with Feeding Birkenhead, it has reported a huge difference in those children’s mental and physical wellbeing, as well as their ability to focus in maths and English lessons.

Staff had previously been paying from their own pockets to try and ensure those children were fed.

Thanks are also due to local residents who volunteered for Feeding Birkenhead’s free meals and fun programme for children during last week’s half term.

Four projects in the North End, Prenton, Rock Ferry, and Tranmere laid on 24 sessions to ensure as many children as possible could enjoy their half term break, rather than worry about where their next meal would come from.
