Fitzy & Wippa’s School Breakfast has launched today with plans to visit 11 schools in the greater Sydney area.
A nutritious meal assists students to focus in class and positively impacts mental health, social skills, behaviour and academic outcomes. Currently, one in five kids in Australia go to school without the most important meal of the day.
To support these kids, Fitzy & Wippa have teamed up with Bendigo Bank’s Community Bank branches to raise just under $60,000. To ensure the funds are allocated where they are needed most, the team have enlisted respected expert’s Foodbank NSW & ACT, known for their School Breakfast 4 Health program.
Over the next four weeks, Fitzy & Wippa, Bendigo Bank’s Community Bank branches and Foodbank NSW & ACT, will send the Nova 96.9 Casanova street team to schools around Sydney, to create a fun morning and provide a nutritious and delicious breakfast for the kids.
Fitzy & Wippa said: “We both have two active boys so we know first hand the importance of a healthy breakfast to set them up for the day. We are thrilled to have partnered with Bendigo Bank’s network of Community Bank branches and Foodbank NSW & ACT for such an important initiative that will have an impact at a grassroots level.”
Last year Fitzy & Wippa partnered with the Bendigo Bank network for their Mega Farm Rescue, raising over $110,000 for Rural Aid that was distributed to NSW farmers in need.
The Nova Sydney hosts had a big show today with a special Big Brother reunion featuring Fitzy and his former TV colleagues. Other guests today were Rebel Wilson and Karl Stefanovic.
