Kicking off breakfast with Total Foodservice
Total Foodservice is backing the Huddersfield Town Football Club initiative to provide free healthy morning meals to around 50 children at five schools in the Huddersfield area.
The “Early Kick-Off” breakfast scheme will run for the rest of the academic year, and was made possible by Total Foodservice and other Huddersfield Town partners.
Total Foodservice used their extensive network of contacts to source the healthy and nutritious breakfast ingredients, which included: fruits, grains, dairy products and protein rich foods.
Huddersfield Town are delivering this food free of charge to the schools and another partner Kirklees College is offering teachers and parents complimentary NVQ courses in food preparation and hygiene.
Maria Moriarty, Marketing Director of Total Foodservice, commented: “The Huddersfield Town Foundation does excellent work to support the local community and this project is something we felt incredibly important to be part of as we have the network and logistics to really make a difference. With recent statistics showing us that 83% of teachers across the UK see evidence of hungry children in their class it reinforces just how essential and needed a project like this is.”
