The Marshall Liberal Government announced a big boost in funding to grow school breakfast programs in South Australia over the next four years, which will enable us to grow our footprint across the state.
As Premier Steven Marshall said:
“Too many students across South Australia fail to meet their academic potential because they come to school hungry.”
“We know that children who consume a healthy breakfast each day are more likely to perform better at school, and this funding ensures that these important programs are extended to more South Australian children.”
Thank you to Premier Steven Marshall, John Gardner MP, Matt Cowdrey – Member for Colton, and the South Australian Liberal Party; as well as Fulham Gardens Primary School for hosting us during the announcement.
“This funding will allow us to provide many more breakfasts to kids who need it, while providing more product to our breakfast programs, as well as increase our levels of volunteer support to ensure adequate services are available to schools that need them.” – Ian Steel, Founder KickStart for Kids
