Quaker Oats have generously donated porridge oats since 2009. Thanks to their support, millions of bowlfuls of nutritious porridge oats have given hungry children across the UK the fuel they need for learning.

Quaker Oats’ porridge is a regular item on the menu at many of our breakfast clubs up and down the country, giving children who may otherwise start the day hungry the chance to get a warm, nutritious breakfast to fuel their concentration and learning, so they can go on to reach their full potential. 

During the pandemic and subsequent school closures, Quaker Oats provided boxes of porridge oats and Oat So Simple sachets to include in our breakfast packs that were sent directly to children’s homes. This vital support helped us ensure that children didn’t go hungry, even when learning from home. In the academic year from 2019-2020 alone, Quaker Oats donated 2.2 million bowls of nutritious porridge to our member schools. 

“We believe that every child deserves a good education, but millions of children across the UK risk missing out because they’re starting their day on an empty stomach. We are proud to donate Quaker Porridge Oats and Oat So Simple to Magic Breakfast, and we have done so since 2009. In doing so, we have been able to provide millions of bowls full of nutritious porridge to children who may otherwise be too hungry to learn.”
