What do we do?

While the title would suggest we just provide cereal and toast for hungry kids, Breakfast Club has become so much more than that.

Feeding children is always the most important issue to address in a struggling school, but it’s also a very useful vehicle for conversations on what is preventing individual students from learning, and ascertain what can be done to help – it might be a lack of shoes, problems in the home, no budget for sanitary products, no way to stay dry on a rainy day. The struggles some kids have, are beyond what many of us could ever imagine.

Breakfast Club’s sole purpose is to find a way to assist our principals and teachers to get kids what they need so they can concentrate on learning – and creating a better future for themselves. Founded by Steve Farrelly, an ex police officer with a soft spot for cheeky, hungry kids in 2010, Breakfast Club now has an amazing team of volunteers and supporters, who help every day in a million different ways.
