Heathcote students given kickstart to day

STUDENTS at Heathcote Primary School have enjoyed a healthy breakfast, thanks to a new partnership between Foodbank Victoria and the Bendigo Bank.

Students this morning dug in to fresh fruit, cereal, baked beans and pancakes as part of the new Kickstart Breakfast Club.

The club aims to provide nutritious food and resources to give students a better start to their day.

School principal Cindi Bruechert said some of her students came from challenging backgrounds and the breakfast program provided a sense of stability.  

The Heathcote and District Community Bank committed $15,000 from branch revenue to the new program.

The breakfast club will run two days a week.
