Join Forces to End Hunger for School Children – Select Effect by Select Staging Concepts
It is a heartbreaking fact that 1 in 3 Aussie school kids in any given class arrive at school hungry. Though it may not be by choice to start the school day on an empty stomach, there are profound consequences of children not consuming breakfast. Such negative impacts include significant decline in concentration, retention of information, dysfunctional mood and behaviour, increased risk of developing obesity to only name a few.
Select Staging Concepts has been giving back to the community through the Select Effect initiative by supporting children within local communities in the fight against hunger. Highly driven and passionate about eradicating children going to school hungry, Select Staging Concepts is donating a percentage of every staging system sale.
Money well spent:
By choosing Select Staging Concepts as your Staging Company Melbourne provider, you are choosing to contribute towards Rapid Relief Team’s (RRT) Smarrt Cookie Initiative. The best part? You can now effect change with money that would already be spent on your next staging solution without the need to donate to RRT directly!
Select Staging Concepts are proud to state that over 24,000 breakfast bars have been funded since May 2021.
More about the Smarrt Cookie Initiative:
What makes this cookie smart? Every child deserves the right to ample nourishment and equal accessibility to health to set them up for a bright future. The Smarrt Cookie packs a punch with a perfectly balanced ratio of protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats, and fiber to ensure energy reserves are optimally filled for the right fuel to power throughout the day! The Smarrt Cookie not only helps with feeding hungry tummies but also assists in the social gaps that can be caused due to not being able to participate in morning tea or lunchtime activities with peers which may cause varying degrees of isolation and anxiety.
Why we do what we do:
It gives us great joy to receive testimonials from teachers who witness this harsh reality on a daily basis:
Recently we had a situation where the recess bell rang and all the students ran from the classroom excitedly while one student walked slowly, visually slumped. He picked up his empty bag, he double-checked to see if there was lunch packed for him but sadly he had nothing. I discreetly gave him some Smart Cookie bars. It was the perfect solution to help lift his spirits so he could enjoy lunch with his peers.”
