The Government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP) is being delivered by Family Action and Magic Breakfast to schools in disadvantaged areas of England. Funding is available to start or improve breakfast provision in over 1,770 schools on a first come, first served basis.

What is on offer?
  • A start-up grant of up to £500 for essential resources to start or expand breakfast. And either:
  • Free food delivered to your door until March 2020 (weekly or fortnightly), comprising as much healthy cereal, porridge and bagels as you need to reach all children at risk of hunger at the start of the school day, or:
  • Grants to subsidise up to 30 additional free places in an existing breakfast provision.


  • Expert support, advice, resources, and the opportunity to benefit from local best practice events and training.
