At the end of February the amazing teaching assistants at Old Oak Primary School launched their pilot project Hungry Lions Club. Their mission is to feed hungry year six children breakfast in school before class starts. The club also engages the children to get to school on time, builds cohesiveness and improves class outcomes enabling all children to learn from the get go.
Bubble & Squeak are now supporting the project by providing surplus food and purchasing equipment for the club such as toasters and kettles using donations from our surplus food stall (yay circular economy!).
On average the team serve 30 slices of toast a day and last week dished out 96 breakfasts! The pilot is running up until the end of May and we will keep you updated on its outcomes.
