SINCE its launch in May, the Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre's (SNRC) Morning Bites breakfast van has received fantastic support from the community.

Today the program was given another boost, thanks to a $500 donation from Commonwealth Bank Scone as part of their community donation program.

SNRC manager Lee Watts said the community's support is so important in ensuring they can continue to serve up breakfast for children.

"The Morning Bites Breakfast van has been fantastic for the Neighbourhood Centre but also for the children that are going to school," she said.

"Lots of people are taking up the offer of breakfast or hot breakfast and we've had a few cool mornings so that's been even better.

"The whole community has been behind it, we've had quite a few donations, including one the other day from Scone Bowling Club for $500.

"John Day collected bottles and cans and the money he got from that he donated to us."

Mrs Watts said every dollar goes back into the program.

"It just goes back into the van, we do still have to purchase food and we have to do things to the van to make sure it's up to scratch as well," she said.

"It's a fantastic project and the community are donating 100 per cent and it's just great to be involved in it."

Commonwealth Bank Scone branch manager Emma Keaton said the employees were excited to have the opportunity to support the SNRC.

It's part of a nationwide community donation program for the bank, which has pledged $500,000 to recognise organisations that make a difference in their communities.

Each Commonwealth Bank branch and customer-facing team has been allocated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.

Commonwealth Bank's Scone branch team voted to support the great work of SNRC.

"The Morning Bites Breakfast program they started earlier this month ensures kids are heading to school with a full tummy, so it's great to be able to give back and support this work," Ms Keaton said.
