SOUTH West College (SWC) is excited to announce the launch of free Breakfast Clubs across all its campuses as they seek to support students and local families amid the cost-of-living crisis.
The new initiative, run entirely by volunteers from the College and food supplied through donations from staff, offers free healthy breakfasts to every student and includes a choice of healthy food options, including cereal, toast, fruit, juice, tea, and coffee. Student Breakfast Clubs will run at the South West Colleges’ Dungannon, Cookstown, Omagh, and Enniskillen campuses every Monday to Wednesday from 8.15am to 9am and have been established due to the rising cost of living.
Celine McCartan, Chief Executive at South West College, said: “This is great initiative and I am very grateful to the College staff who are supporting this. This means students can get a quick breakfast as soon as they get to college which sets them up for the day ahead. At South West College, we are committed supporting the health and wellbeing of our students as well as actively addressing inequality. We benefits including alleviating financial anxiety, providing another social outlet and positively impacting our student’s physical and mental well-being and in turn supporting their academic pursuits.”
