Did you know that in the first three weeks of lockdown due to Covid-19 a YouGov and Food Foundation survey
found that around 3 million people in the UK experienced hunger?
It’s not surprising, with Coronavirus forecasted to increase unemployment rates by 6.2% in the UK, (source) and families already living hand to mouth being amongst those hardest hit (source).
That is why the team at BioPak UK have set out to support those most at risk; children living below the poverty line during Covid-19, and we are delighted to announce our partnership with Magic Breakfast.
Magic Breakfast is a not-for-profit organisation*, working with 480 schools across England and Scotland to ensure underprivileged children have access to a healthy start to the day, so they can focus on the education available to them.
The usual Magic Breakfast infrastructure would ensure that their 480 partner schools receive a mix of delicious and healthy breakfast goods to serve at school. Understandably, Covid-19 has meant prioritising children’s health and safety, via school closures and social distancing, however this has not stopped Magic Breakfast in its mission to ensure disadvantaged children, now more vulnerable than ever, have access to a good and healthy start to the day! BioPak are proud to support Magic Breakfast’s new campaign, ‘Keeping Breakfast Going’, where their new delivery model means the charity can deliver tens of thousands of breakfasts every week to those who need it most.
