School Breakfast Clubs

A number of New Zealand schools serving “low decile” (low socio-economic) areas have breakfast clubs which supply breakfasts for at least some of the children at the school one or more days each week.  There are a number of organisations that provide food for breakfast clubs, including the following:

Some breakfast clubs rely on food that is donated by businesses, while others pay for food out of their own school budgets.  These schools in particular may appreciate donations of food and/or assistance with starting/maintaining school gardens to help improve their students’ nutrition  and learning.
