School Food Matters

On 30th March 2021 the charity School Food Matters had managed to deliver one million breakfasts to children severely impacted by the pandemic, exposing the scale of food insecurity and the knock-on impact on children’s health.

The Breakfast Boxes programme launched during the first lockdown in May 2020 and has continued throughout school closures and school holidays, providing nutritious food to children and young people in need, many of whom have been pushed by the pandemic into food poverty.   

The programme was designed with Impact on Urban Health, part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity.  For more information visit or Follow School Food Matters on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
