Breakfast proves to be the most important meal of the day

Victoria's School Breakfast Clubs have now served more than two million meals across the state. Since the launch of the program at the start of last year, School Breakfast Clubs have been providing 50,000 free breakfasts every week at 500 of Victoria’s most disadvantaged schools.

Seaford Primary’s Breakfast Club is one of hundreds enjoying fresh apples this week thanks to a generous donation from family-owned produce company Montague Fresh, based in Narre Warren North.

Research by Foodbank Victoria, who delivers School Breakfast Clubs in partnership with the Government, shows the program is making a real difference for children and staff.

Since the program started, nine out of 10 teachers have seen improved student concentration, seven out of 10 have noted improved attendance and more than eight out of 10 teachers say they now have better relationships with their students.
