Challenge

In Melbourne, the Coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on the most vulnerable communities. The closure of schools saw children suffer from food insecurity, with food consumption and nutrition becoming increasingly compromised. Parents were also unprepared for the demands of home schooling which saw many children disengaged with remote learning. The challenge now is to ensure that our community's children and youth not only return to school but stay in school once they re-open.

Solution

After missing an extended period of schooling due to lockdown, this project will assist children returning to education through the provision of healthy food and physical activity through the game of football. City in the Community will deliver free football and physical activity classes, along with education on health and nutrition, at Breakfast and Homework Clubs run by SecondBite Charities.

Long-Term Impact

This will be a holistic approach to tackle the nutritional, physical and social needs of young children who have been isolated for many weeks without being able to properly focus on their education.
