Every morning my day starts by making (sometimes healthy!) lunches for our three kids to take off to school. It connects me to their day and I know that they are heading off happy - fuelled up for learning, sport and fun!
Since launching My NooK, we have been so lucky to support some amazing charities and great causes... but it was important to us as an Australian family business to look closely at how we could have the greatest impact on children's lives with our community support.
I was astounded to learn that 1 in 8 children in Australia will arrive at school without any food for their lunch.
We all know how hard it is to concentrate, engage and listen when we are hungry - so we started actively looking for a charity partner who was addressing this inequality.
We are so excited to announce we have now partnered with Eat Up. Founded by Lyndon Galea in 2013, from small origins and with big dreams, Lyndon and his team have now provided over 1,000,000 lunches to school children all over Australia!
We couldn't be happier to be donating One Week of school lunches through Eat Up for every single NooK purchase!
