Foodbank WA School Breakfast Program

 

Overview

The Foodbank Western Australian (WA) School Breakfast Program benefits the community by providing a nutritious breakfast for high risk students and communities in WA.

Foodbank WA supplies quality School Breakfast Program food products to registered schools free of charge, such as canned fruit, wheat biscuits, oats, and more. Where possible, schools are able to access fresh produce, including bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh milk and yoghurt.

An evaluation of the initiative found that the program positively contributed to a number of factors, including:

The program has grown from 17 schools in 2001 to over 430 schools, across metropolitan, rural and remote Western Australia.

Between 2010 and 2014 the Choose to Move school-based physical activity initiative was available to Foodbank WA’s School Breakfast Program schools.
