Swindon secondary school announces it will now offer free breakfast to pupils
By Jessica Durston - 10 January 2023
Bradon Forest School staff say they are pleased to start the new year off by announcing free breakfast porridge for the whole school community.
This new breakfast service started on Wednesday 4 January at the Swindon secondary school.
ABM Catering teamed up with Bradon Forest to deliver the new restaurant service, entitled 'Mint', where students and staff can receive free porridge.
The Bradon Forest team say this initiative was set up due to the current cost of living crisis, and in order to support the belief that everyone should start the day with a hearty breakfast.
Headteacher, Mrs Sarah Haines, said: "We are delighted to welcome ABM to Bradon Forest. They have some excellent ideas to further encourage healthy eating, regular hydration and sustainability."
The school says its vibrant new look canteen, together with a range of freshly prepared, innovative, seasonally influenced menus will be offered at breakfast, morning break and lunch services.
