Here at Greggs, we think everyone deserves access to healthy and tasty food.

That’s why The Greggs Foundation, our grant-making charity, are working hard to tackle food insecurity through an important  new partnership with Rethink Food. 

Using the foundation’s existing network of Greggs Breakfast Club schools, the pairing with the food education charity will teach children of the importance of food security by shaping the way they view food, health and sustainability. 

One in four households with children in the UK have experienced food insecurity in the past month. This equates to around 4,000,000 children overall. 

Because these struggles are more likely in households with children, The Greggs Foundation - has been ramping up efforts to ensure children are fully equipped with the knowledge they need to live a food secure life.  

Working towards revolutionising food education, we’ll take a proactive approach in educating school children on the importance of making sustainable and healthy choices.  

Working with Rethink Food, we’ll be delivering a new education programme called ‘Agents of Change’, a year long course specially tailored for Year 2 and Year 3 pupils. 

The programme has been designed to help children learn about making sustainable food and lifestyle choices, the importance of physical activity and healthy diets in a fun and engaging way.  

Available free of charge to all 770 Greggs Breakfast Club schools, the programme has the potential to reach up to 50,000 children over three years and play an integral role in building stronger, healthier communities, support pupils and continue to grow the highly successful Greggs Breakfast Clubs programme.
