A good start to the day; a good start in life
We recognise that at this time many schools, charities and community groups will be worried about the Coronavirus (COVID -19) outbreak and its impact on their work and communities. We want to do everything we can to support those communities and are concentrating our efforts on providing urgent support and funding for emergency food initiatives through our Breakfast Club schools.
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. Greggs staff are also passionate supporters of the scheme volunteering and fundraising for breakfast clubs and currently support over 104 breakfast clubs nationally. There are now 535 breakfast clubs, providing free breakfasts to over 35,000 children every school day.
