Magic Breakfast Charity – Start your day doing something good
Don’t go to school on an empty stomach.
With school having started again, it is time for a re-run of a cause close to our hearts and bellies.
The charity Magic Breakfast works with schools in deprived areas to ensure that children who most need it will get breakfast before the school day start. They provide porridge, bagels, toast and cereal – and the kids can then start their learning with full tummies. Because how can you learn anything when your tummy rumbles?
Since February 2015 we have been working with Magic Breakfast by donating one breakfast to a child for each bowl of porridge sold in our café. You get breakfast, they get breakfast. And in August this year, our head office joined in on the fun by setting up a penny jar – we encourage each other to do a weekly penny dump into the jar – the contents will go in their entirety to Magic Breakfast.
Every time you buy a bowl of porridge at our place, we will donate one breakfast to a child via Magic Breakfast.
Just like that. A bowl for bowl.
So, when your mother told you porridge was good for you, well, little did she know it was also going to be good for someone else, too.
We hope to see you all to pop by for our delicious oat and rye porridge with lovely toppings, such as nuts, seeds, fruit, honey, cinnamon – or maybe try one of our Guest Porridges that visit from time to time. Not only is porridge quick and easy in a hectic morning – it is also wonderfully warming and nutritious, and can be tailored to your taste and needs. Feeling fruity? Have yours with fresh berries. In need of a hug? Add a sprinkle of cardamom and lots of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey. Want it creamy? Cook it with milk.
We really want to continue supporting Magic Breakfast as much as we can. So please help out – pop by and eat porridge at ours and feel full and happy in the knowledge that someone else will be, too.
Thank you all for your continued support in this – we feel very passionately about full bellies, about children’s right to learn. About child welfare, in general. Together, we can make a bit of a difference.
Lots of love
The Kitchen People
