Dimensions supports Greggs Breakfast Club programme by funding 30,000 breakfasts at Roe Farm Primary School
Dimensions has been working with Greggs PLC since July 2014, supplying their workforce with branded uniform. As part of Dimensions’ ongoing relationship with Greggs PLC Dimensions became a Supporter of the Greggs Breakfast Club programme in 2016 and with commitment to a further 2 years of funding will have donated a minimum of 30,000 breakfasts to the children who live in food insecure households at Roe Farm Primary School.
Lynne Hindmarch, Greggs Foundation Breakfast Club Manager explains the current issue of food insecurity: “Food insecurity is a major issue in the UK and it is shocking to think that not every child in the country has access to breakfast. One in three (4.1 million) children live in poverty in the UK, with an estimated 2.5 million living in food insecure households. Our support has never been more needed due to COVID -19 and the challenges this brings. To date Greggs Foundation support 600 school breakfast clubs nationally, over 39,000 pupils each school day, 7.1 million breakfast a year!
The Breakfast Club programme is funded by Greggs Foundation as well as a growing number of business partners. Our partners are critical to the success of this programme and very important to us. Each business will bring their own particular skills to the scheme and by coming together we share and learn from each other. Partners value us sharing our experiences and supporting them to take a more active, responsible role in supporting the communities where they operate. A huge shout out to Dimensions for playing their part and supporting the children attending Roe Farm Primary, we really could not do it without the wonderful partnership we have developed”.
Helen Weston, Head Teacher at Roe Farm Primary School comments: “The funding support we receive from Dimensions it a real benefit to the children as it enables those who attend to receive a healthy and nutritious breakfast that sets them up for the day ahead. They are able to try a range of different healthy breakfasts to fuel their brain ready for learning.”
Dimensions is proud to be a Supporter of the Greggs Breakfast Club because it is a fabulous opportunity to support a school in the local community and provide those children living in food insecure households with a free breakfast every day.
