The Greggs Foundation has celebrated the opening of its 800th Breakfast Club recently. As a key partner of The Greggs Foundation and Greggs Breakfast Clubs, we know the positive impact our support has had on school communities around the UK, and we are thrilled to have contributed towards serving wholesome, free breakfasts to children every school day.
Simon Taylor, Commercial Director, works closely with Greggs as a business partner and supports the Greggs Foundation. Simon said: “Greggs is one of our most important business partners but outside of business they do some amazing work in the community. This milestone is huge news for us, and we hope to see another big landmark number soon. We also attend fundraising events, fund school breakfast clubs and the Growing Towers scheme which enables children to grow their own food – developing a better understanding of how food is produced. But all of this cannot happen without the kind donations of businesses and the public.”
As the cost-of-living crisis continues to impact children and families throughout the UK, the Greggs Foundation offers all schools in its breakfast club network access to a hardship fund. The fund helps those in financial crisis with support for food, clothing and energy vouchers, as well as essential home appliances.
The opening of the 800th Club means the Greggs Foundation is on track to meet its Greggs Pledge ambition to open 1,000 Breakfast Clubs by 2025.
