A recruitment drive for the Department for Education's free national school breakfast programme (NSBP) is underway. The programme is delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast, who are encouraging schools in disadvantaged areas of England to join the hundreds who've already applied.
Most eligible schools doing so receive free, healthy breakfast food delivered directly to their door for four terms. Schools also get support from a dedicated NSBP staff member, resources, best practice events and a £500 start-up grant for necessary equipment such as toasters or a freezer.
Schools can check their eligibility by filling out an Expression of Interest form on the Family Action or Magic Breakfast websites.
