Breakfast clubs how it all works

How it all works?

Fonterra and Sanitarium provide and deliver the product with the New Zealand Government providing the funding to be able to offer the programme nationwide to all schools. It is up to the school community to provide provisions including bowls, spoons, a central location, food storage facilities and of course the people to run the breakfast club. With support from the local community, the breakfast club creates an environment that encourages students to develop social skills, take on extra responsibility and grow academically.

Breakfast clubs acting environment

Acting as kaitiaki for our environment!

We’re proud to serve over 140,000 breakfasts a week. To ensure we are all doing our part as kaitiaki in caring for our environment, KickStart Breakfast provides special recycling bins to all our schools to collect our Anchor milk packs.

We also encourage schools to do their part in correctly recycling the cardboard boxes your Anchor milk and Sanitarium Weet-Bix are packaged in. Some of our schools are taking their eco-warrior status to the next level and have started recycling the plastic liner in their local soft plastics recycling. We 100% support this.

Our schools take their environmental awareness to the next level by reaching out to the wider community donations of unused crockery and cutlery to help get their breakfast clubs off the ground.
