National School Breakfast Programme Covid-19 response

Our Covid-19 Breakfast response, under the National School Breakfast Programme umbrella, in partnership with Magic Breakfast and funded by the Department for Education, offers support to schools in disadvantaged communities across England to improve access to healthy breakfasts during the pandemic.

Revised programme

From Autumn 2020, a revised programme will be offered to up to 650 schools not already benefiting from the NSBP, within disadvantaged communities, including the Department for Education’s 12 opportunity areas. Schools will be offered breakfast delivery grants and deliveries of healthy food to ensure all children who need it can access breakfast, at home or at school.

How to access the service

If your school previously applied for support under the NSBP, you will be contacted if we believe you are eligible for the Covid-19 support. If your school is interested in Covid-19 breakfast support, we can accept further applications but cannot guarantee we will have funded places still available. To be considered, please complete our Expression of interest form and email the completed form to nsbp@family-action.org.uk.

Our Impact

To celebrate the first year of the National School Breakfast Programme we are delighted to have launched our Year 1 Progress Report: Food for Thought. The report demonstrates the positive impact that providing a free healthy breakfast at school is having on over 280,000 children to date, as well as how the programme is working to bridge the attainment gap.
