Life at home wasn’t easy for Anastacia. Her mum Connie has breast cancer and at the time, was recovering from a double mastectomy, so as you can imagine, with all the bills and treatment, they struggled to put food on the table.
“If I don’t have breakfast, I feel tired and weak,” Anastacia said. “After I’ve eaten at the Breakfast Club, I feel good. I don’t feel tired. I feel like I have a lot of energy and I can finish the whole day off nice and good.”
With the support of our amazing #TeamFoodbank participants from The Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac in 2017, Foodbank was able to provide 57,000 breakfasts to School Breakfast Programs across NSW & the ACT, including Anastasia’s.
Bronwyn, the School Principal, witnessed a classroom revolution thanks to the support of #TeamFoodbank participants – increased concentration in children and a big reduction in discipline issues.
At Foodbank we believe that when you give kids breakfast today – you are also giving them choice about their tomorrow.
