Break Free

What is Break Free?

Break Free is part of a Bristol wide project called Feeding Bristol.

In partnership with Youth Moves, based in one of the most deprived areas in Bristol, we run a programme that delivers a range of accessible activities at the same time as alleviating holiday hunger.

What does it do?

Our team of professional sports coaches & youth workers take a mobile sports village into the most deprived neighbourhoods of South Bristol to deliver free, meaningful, high quality sports & other activities during school holiday periods.

Whilst delivering these fun & inspiring sessions, our trained staff will also provide the young people with breakfast & lunch so that they get at least two meals throughout the day.

Why is it needed?

A recent report by Kelloggs explored the impact of children going to school hungry and found that:

  • Hunger has a significant impact on concentration, behaviour and children’s ability to learn, so…
  • If a child arrives at school hungry they lose at least 1 hour of learning a day…
  • This equates to 8.4 weeks of learning time over their whole primary schooling.
  • 2.4 pupils in every classroom will arrive at school hungry at least once a week.
