Breakfast championed by Coventry volunteers

John Carlon 20th Aug, 2020

DEDICATED volunteers in Coventry are working hard to make sure some of the city’s needy families are starting their day with the most important meal.

Members of the Coventry Food Network. are working with the city council to deliver Summer Breakfast Club packs, containing five days of nutritionally balanced breakfasts and activities.

Coun Patricia Seaman, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “The fantastic team of volunteers in Coventry Food Network has made sure that Coventry children whose families are experiencing hardship have got access to a great meal at the start of the day.

“Many of these children would have had free school meals and these packs mean that even during the holidays, they have been given this extra support.”

There are 18 Food Hubs across the city providing access to the Breakfast Club packs which are allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

The Coventry Food Network provides food to those in greatest need and offers access to other Grub Hubs and Foodbanks as well as the Breakfast Club packs for children.
