Cereals for Schools
At our Harvest services in recent years we collect boxes of cereals for school breakfast clubs.
The types of cereal we ask for are supermarkets’ own branded versions of:
- corn flakes,
- malt wheats,
- rice pops and
- wheat biscuits.
The reason we prefer own-brand versions is that they generally contain less sugar.
We have two schools, not far away, where we have built good links, where we know the importance of their breakfast club and how the children there learn much better if they have had a good healthy breakfast.
We give the cereals collected to these two schools to use as they want. If we collect more boxes of cereals than they can cope with–which would be lovely–we give to another school as well.
