The breakfast program runs each morning at the school and delivers toast, cereals, yogourts, apples and oranges to students who may otherwise go without.

"We serve anywhere from 35–40 kids a day—so it's a big chunk—and with groceries going up now it helps a lot," said Banga.

"We make it an enjoyable environment for the kids to start off their day."
