The Greggs Breakfast Club Programme was established in 1999 to help primary school children get a nutritious start to their school day.


Every school is provided with fresh bread from their nearest Greggs shop, and a grant to support start-up and ongoing costs. The average club costs just £2,000 to set up and run for a year.

The first breakfast club was established in 1999 as part of a Business in the Community ‘Seeing is Believing’ event. The event was in response to growing concerns that children were attending school without having any breakfast. Greggs plc took up the charge and established the first ‘Greggs’ breakfast club. Pictured above, children from New York Primaray celebrating the opening of Greggs Foundation 400th breakfast club with Roger Whiteside, Greggs plc, CEO.
