THE Greggs Foundation has announced the opening of a new Breakfast Club at Rosa Street Primary School, in Spennymoor, County Durham.

The new club will offer 30 children who need it a free, nutritionally balanced breakfast before school to help pupils to be prepared for the day ahead. Breakfast offerings will include toast, low sugar cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice, and milk. As well as providing a nutritious morning meal, the club aims to encourage children to enjoy themselves and engage with school staff and the education system.

Launched in 1999, the Greggs Foundation’s Breakfast Club programme has grown to serve free breakfasts to around 40,000 children every school day, at over 650 Clubs across the UK.

So far the programme has served over 58 million free meals with an ambition to support 1,000 Breakfast Clubs by 2025, serving 70,000 free, nutritious meals each school day, as announced in The Greggs Pledge earlier in the year.

Lynne Hindmarch, Breakfast Club Manager for the Greggs Foundation, commented: “Through Breakfast Clubs such as this, we’re able to support over 40,000 children each day nationally, and new openings like the one at Rosa Street Primary School are helping us to continue heading towards reaching our target of serving 70,000 breakfasts each school day by 2025.”
