The Inglewood woman and members of her community have come together to create a program called the Breakfast Cafe.

Reverend Harper says the new program, run at the Inglewood Primary School each Monday, is a chance for students, teachers and parents to get together and enjoy a healthy meal. “Creating a breakfast program was on my list of things to do in the community,” she said.

“It is about having a strong community focus and working together.”

Reverend Harper said toast with Vegemite and honey, fruit juice and Milo were all on the breakfast menu.

“In the future we also plan to use eggs and food that is growing at the school’s Stephanie Alexander Garden as well as yoghurt, cheese and porridge,” she said.

“Bread is donated by the Bridgewater Bakery, food items from Inglewood IGA and Bendigo Food Bank.”

Reverend Harper said a lot of research was undertaken before the breakfast program began. “I went to Eaglehawk North Primary School’s breakfast that is run by the YMCA, and saw they also run activities during their breakfasts; I think that is something we might look at doing,” she said.

Breakfast is held at Inglewood Primary School at 8.30am each Monday
