Almost 3000 free breakfasts have been served to students in the first month of the new academic year, thanks to Fife College’s Breakfast Club.

It is one of only a handful in the country, and it means that all students can enjoy free toast, cereal or porridge and a cup of tea or coffee every weekday.

A total of 2962 breakfasts have been dished up across its’s five campuses during the first weeks of the 2022/23 academic year.

The college has also designated libraries as 'warm spaces' to offer somewhere warm for students to study, helping avoid having to use too much of their own gas and electricity.

They are available at all campuses with some libraries open in the evening as well.

Vicki Anton, head of student experience, said: “With the cost-of-living set to rise higher and higher, we are keen to highlight all the supportive measures available to students that can help reduce the impacts of rising costs.

“The Breakfast Club, which ensures all students have access to a nutritious meal to start their college day, is a great example of this.”

Run in partnership with catering contractor Aramark, the club also offers free hot rolls on a Friday.
