What is on offer?
  • 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.
  • The NSBP Covid-19 Breakfast response is currently offering support to schools in disadvantaged communities across England to improve access to healthy breakfasts during the pandemic.


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