The YMCA Schools' Breakfast Program aims to provide children who miss out on breakfast with a free nutritious breakfast to kick start their day and a real chance in the classroom. Adult role models are needed to be breakfast mentors. The role includes volunteering as part of a team to prepare and serve breakfast (toast and cereal) to school children.

Volunteers are required for at least one morning per week. The program operates from 7:50am - 9:10am each morning of the week (school terms only) at Burrowes State School in Marsden.

The YMCA Schools' Breakfast Program provides free breakfasts to thousands of children and young people throughout South East Queensland. This program could not be run without dedicated volunteers. The impact of volunteers serving school children breakfast has a ripple effect with ongoing results and outcomes which we may never fully realise or get to see, but is life changing for those children and ultimately the future of our community.
