About Greggs Breakfast Club Programme
The Greggs Breakfast Club Programme was established in 1999 to help primary school children get a nutritious start to their school day. The Greggs Foundation now oversees 680 clubs, providing a nutritious breakfast to over 44,500 school children each day, over 8.6 million each year! Most of the Greggs breakfast club schools are in disadvantaged areas and have high numbers of pupils who qualify for free school meals.
The Greggs Foundation encourages the use of parent volunteers in breakfast club. Research has shown the clubs create opportunities to volunteer, helping inactive adults become work ready. Breakfast Clubs also help to build relationships, both between pupils who enjoy socialising over a meal, and between the school and the parents benefiting from the extra support.
The Greggs Foundation receives funding from a range of partners, often private sector companies including our major partner, Greggs plc. Greggs Foundation uses the money to support breakfast clubs through an initial start up grant for equipment such as chest freezers to store food items or toys and activities for the club. Greggs Foundation also makes a payment each term towards other food items and Greggs plc donates bread from the nearest shop.
