FUEL FOR SCHOOL
Over 500,000 children go to school hungry every single day in the UK. That's at least half a million children in our country arriving to school too hungry to learn.
Research has shown a direct link between the breakfast habits of children and their educational attainment, with children in primary schools who eat breakfast achieving on average up to two months' additional academic progress over the course of a year.
We are partnering with Colchester Food Bank and local organisations to bring a free breakfast club to Berechurch in Colchester.
From Wednesday 2nd October, we will be at Orchard Baptist Church every Wednesday from 7.15am - 8.15am ensuring that families in need are fuelled before school.
