The Greggs Foundation Breakfast Club – Fresh bread and grants

The Greggs Foundation allows schools to choose nutritious options for their pupils and supplies freshly baked bread donated by their local Greggs shop.

Grants are available from The Greggs Foundation for UK primary schools interested in opening free breakfast clubs. The initial start-up grant can be used for equipment such as chest freezers to store food items, or toys and activities for the club. The average club costs £3,000 to set up and run for a year based on 65 children.

Schools should able to attract adult volunteers to help run the scheme, which must be able to show that at least 40% of their pupils qualify for free school meals and that the school serves a disadvantaged community.

Payments are also made each term towards other food items.

Although applications can be made at any time, there is currently a waiting list for funding.
