What is Co-Funding?

Co-funding with the ALMT allows individuals, other Trusts and Foundations, and Companies to contribute funds directly to individual, vetted and approved, project partnerships. With fifteen years of experience awarding grants and working in partnership with children’s organisations around the world, the ALMT is best placed to support you in your philanthropy.

4.1 million children in the UK are living in poverty, with as many as 1.8 million school age children considered to be at risk of hunger. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, Magic Breakfast worked in schools to provide free and nutritious breakfasts for children to help them learn.

 

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Magic Breakfast remains as determined as ever to provide children at risk of hunger with access to a free, nutritious breakfast at the start of the day. What they do is critical – Magic Breakfast is a lifeline for children who often have no food at home, and for parents/carers who can take comfort in knowing their children will be fed at the beginning of the day. The safety of families and school communities is of upmost importance. Magic Breakfast work closely with the Department of Education to ensure that all activities are in line with Coronavirus Act 2020.

 

This project is enabling Magic Breakfast to provide take-home breakfast provision for 2,252 children and has been made possible with the generous support of Co-Funders and our corporate partner RenaissanceRe.
