The Greggs Foundation currently supports over 465 breakfast clubs throughout England, Scotland and Wales, providing free breakfasts to over 30,342 children every school day.
Schools that are interested in opening a breakfast club at your school must be able to show that at least 40% of your pupils qualify for free school meals and that the school serves a disadvantaged community.
The School should be able to attract adult volunteers to help run the scheme and attendance at the club must be free for all pupils.
The 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.
