A secondary school in the heart of Salford has been supporting students get a hearty nutritious breakfast for free, no matter what their circumstances for the past six years and in the last two, have been recently supported by Amazon UK.
Parcels of healthy breakfast food delivered by the local Amazon delivery station team have been arriving on the doorstep of Oasis Academy MediaCityUK, Salford, thanks to an expanded partnership between Magic Breakfast and Amazon.
Students from years 7 to 11 have consumed over 75,600 bagels, 2,700 boxes of cereal and over 2,500 litres of fresh juice since the Magic Breakfast partnership started.
Since schools closed due to COVID-19, however, the academy has adapted its delivery model, with help from Amazon, to ensure that children can continue to enjoy their Magic Breakfast at home.
Every fortnight over 100 academy students receive a delivery parcel which includes items such as bagels, porridge, beans and fresh milk.Marie Hall, Senior Pastoral Leader at Oasis Academy MediaCityUK, said;
“We are incredibly grateful to Magic Breakfast and Amazon for supplying us with this amazing food for our students and families.”
“Some of the parents who have taken up the offer of a breakfast delivery are not Free School Meals or Pupil Premium, but on low income, falling short of the threshold for assistance with benefits. All our parents are extremely grateful to be offered this service.”
Since the partnership began in 2016, Amazon has helped Magic Breakfast provide over 1.5 million breakfasts to thousands of children across the UK.
Parents have praised the academy for their work, saying;
“Magic Breakfast has been fantastic, everything goes down so well, the family really appreciate it, and its delivered to your door.”
With another saying;
“A big thank you for the breakfast parcel that was very thoughtful of use as it has been a struggle financially and it really did help.”
