Firm near Ruislip Manor sorts out school breakfasts

October 17, 2017 by  

Food manufacturer General Mills is now supporting a breakfast club in Hayes.

Uxbridge-based General Mills has teamed up with the Greggs Foundation to deliver the breakfast service. Local businesses may use promotional products from Ruislip Manor for marketing purposes. Pupils attending the Belmore Primary Academy (BPA) on Owen Road will benefit from the scheme. Around 120 children are set to get the free meals going forward.

Paul Bateman, the headteacher of the BPA, told the Hillingdon Times:

“It’s fantastic to see leading food companies, such as General Mills, helping to tackle the issue of food insecurity in the UK. The funding they’ve provided will make a real difference to the lives of our pupils both from an educational and social perspective.”

The generosity of General Mills will make a real difference to the lives of the children. The contribution of the business guarantees that the school will have sufficient food for two years of breakfasts.

The Greggs Foundation is involved in the running of approximately 450 clubs which serve breakfast. The result is that over 25,000 breakfasts are distributed on a daily basis. The organisation will ensure that fresh bread can be eaten by the youngsters at the BPA.

Hillingdon’s mayor, Councillor Carol Melvin, attended the launch of the club. Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell MP was also in his constituency on the day to mark the occasion.
