We believe that every child deserves access to a healthy, filling breakfast, starting the day ready to learn.

Write to your Parliamentary Candidates

We know that a nutritious breakfast is the best start to the day for school children everywhere. Will you contact your prospective parliamentary candidates and ask them to join the fight to end classroom hunger? 

Ask the party leaders to take action

Free school breakfasts are already boosting hundreds of thousands of children’s learning. Add your name to our letter, asking all party leaders to end child morning hunger as a barrier to learning.

Go a few steps further…

You can engage candidates (and their teams) in lots of different ways. Our pack of ideas and prompts will help you confidently start a conversation around breakfast and education.

We’ve seen how hunger harms children.

Hungry children can’t concentrate. When pupils have empty tummies, we might as well have empty classrooms. But the consequences go beyond access to education – they intensify inequality, health issues and continue the cycle of poverty in society.

It doesn’t need to be this way.

Breakfast is already boosting hundreds of thousands of children’s learning, health and future prospects. We are asking the next government to end child morning hunger for good by expanding free school breakfast.
