Breakfast program funding boost

9 April 2019

Foodbank and Kickstart for Kids will each receive $400,000 over the next four years to continue to deliver their breakfast programs and expand them in government primary schools across the state.

The funding will allow both Foodbank and Kickstart for Kids to increase their food supply and levels of volunteer support to ensure adequate services are available to the schools that need them.

Around 330 schools across the state already benefit from the breakfast program provided by these providers.

The investment will help schools to meet the needs of more children more often when it comes to starting the day with a full stomach.

Making breakfast programs available to every school that needs one is part of the Education Departments Literacy Guarantee.
