KickStart for Kids Annual Event

KickStart for Kids are presenting their annual ‘No Breakfast, Breakfast’ this Thursday the 9th of December, 2021 at the Hilton Adelaide.

KickStart for Kids is a South Australian not-for-profit organisation that provides a breakfast program for underprivileged kids who often start their day on an empty stomach. The program currently serves around 60,000 breakfasts per week in over 400 schools across the state.

The ‘No Breakfast, Breakfast’, emceed this year by the Honourable Connie Bonaros MLC, gives people the opportunity to start their day by supporting thousands of hungry South Australian kids as they voluntarily skip breakfast.

Guests may choose to indulge in breakfast after the event or continue their day on an empty stomach to experience the effect on their mental and physical strength.

The event aims to acknowledge that having breakfast is a privilege that should be appreciated.

“Over the past two years, we have seen child hunger in South Australia worse as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a huge product shortage for our breakfast program, and thousands of kids are in dire need of our support.” KickStart for Kids founder, Ian Steel OAM said.

Ian and KickStart for Kids relies on the good people of Adelaide to help with his mission and the ‘No Breakfast, Breakfast’ gives you the opportunity to do so.

“The majority of us are so lucky to wake up and have access to breakfast every single morning, a basic comfort that so many lack,” Ian said.

All money raised from ticket sales with go towards purchasing breakfasts for the program.

Single tickets are $65 or it’s $600 for a table of 10, with all proceeds going to KickStart for Kids.
