Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre's Morning Bites Breakfast Van returning for 2020 school year

THE 'Morning Bites' Breakfast Van is ready for another school year and every student is welcome, says Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre Manager Lee Watts.

The mobile van commenced in 2019 with 23 volunteers preparing and serving 853 breakfasts to students on their way to school.

The program is aimed at providing breakfast to students free of charge, giving them the right fuel to start the day, helping them to fully participate in class and achieve the best grades possible.

"The menu is rotated over an eight-week period with freshly made waffles, bacon and egg rolls and cheese toasties a few of the breakfasts on the menu served with fruit, muffins and milo or juice," Mrs Watts said.

"The support behind the van has been incredible in 2019 and we hope that support can continue in 2020.

"We are looking to local businesses for monthly sponsorship. For that sponsorship the business can place signage at the van during the month and we will promote them through our social media."

If you are a business and would like to sponsor the breakfast van for a month please contact Lee Watts on 6545 2562 to discuss.

Mrs Watts said there is also room for more volunteers in the van and volunteers that have a tow bar are in short supply to tow the vehicle from its parking place to the front of the Neighbourhood Centre.

"All volunteers are most welcome," Mrs Watts added.
