I love eating at school because when I am hungry I can’t learn. I know I can focus on learning when I have breakfast. Many students in our school use Food for Learning and they feel the same. Grade 8 Student
It makes students happy to have food in their tummies. Food helps me learn. The fresh fruit is my favourite. Grade 4 Student
I don’t always have time for breakfast, because we live far away, but I always know that there will be enough food to feed me at school. Grade 7 Student
