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.
