Foodbank WA school breakfast program

 

Overview

The Foodbank WA school breakfast programTM benefits the community by improving the social determinants of health (health, education and employment) for high risk students and communities in WA.

Through the Foodbank WA school breakfast programTM, students not only receive a nutritionally wholesome breakfast, they benefit from the many positive social, educational and health promotion aspects of the program. For example the program has been shown to improve student concentration, class attendance and academic outcomes.

The program has grown from 17 schools in 2001 to over 350 schools in 2011, across metropolitan, rural and remote Western Australia. The common catalyst for schools wishing to establish a breakfast program is students presenting to school without an inadequate breakfast.
