Magic Breakfast is a charity registered in England and Scotland that ensures no child is too hungry to learn through the provision of healthy breakfast food and expert support to schools. A hungry child cannot concentrate so will miss out on half a day of lessons, every day, if not given anything to eat.
In England they support schools with 35% or more pupils eligible for free school meals, or with 50% Ever 6 FSM, delivering nutritious food and bespoke advice on the optimum way to reach every malnourished and vulnerable child.
They work with over 470 Primary Schools, and we are really luck to be one of them!
We receive deliveries of bagels and juice every 2 weeks. It's a nice surprise to see what flavour the juice is!

School closures & holidays
As many schools remained closed during lockdown, Magic Breakfast worked to ensure that children from 480 partner schools still get their Magic Breakfast.
Magic Breakfast normally provides healthy breakfasts to 48,400 schoolchildren across the country. Following the government's instruction that schools should close, or stay open at a reduced capacity for vulnerable children and those of key workers, Magic Breakfast worked with urgency to ensure that Magic Breakfasts were still available to as many children as possible, whether they were at school or home.
Magic Breakfast is continuing to provide healthy breakfasts, via their partner schools, to children at risk of hunger during this period of crisis. To support this they are running a public campaign called Keeping Breakfast Going.
Magic Breakfast, guided by their partner schools (and with the generous help of food and delivery partners Arla, Heinz, Kellogg's, Morrisons, New York Bakery Co, Quaker Oats UK), is delivering breakfast food to all those partner schools who have requested it – cereal, bagels, porridge, baked beans, vouchers for milk.
Magic Breakfast have expanded its long-standing partnership with Amazon to deliver breakfast packs for children to their homes. These are delivered fortnightly during school holidays upon request.
