AFC Bournemouth have come together with USANA to give back to the local community.

The organisations will be working to support breakfast clubs in schools in an initiative that will build on the delivery of existing Community Sports Trust programmes.

The Trust already support the Holiday Activity Fund programme, a free holiday club open to children aged between 7-14 years old from low-income families or those entitled to free school meals.

USANA, through their foundation have matched the funded money from the Cherries Community Fund to extend and deliver the programme in term time too.

Eight schools are involved, all of which were offered breakfast club one day a week for six weeks, with up to 30 spaces for children available.

Studies show that eating breakfast positively affects school performance, with children having better concentration and more energy.

USANA became the club’s Official Nutritional and Multi-Vitamin Supplier in the 2015/16 season, working closely on supporting the first team, academy teams and the women’s team.

USANA Foundation continues to support local and international organisations and people in need, with their mission to eliminate hunger and malnutrition. 

“Our mission at the USANA Foundation is to develop a network of communities built on long-lasting, sustainable, and nutritious food,” said Brian Paul, USANA Foundation president.

“Our hope is that this initiative will help fulfil our mission and create a positive impact on the community. Food poverty and insecurity is an issue in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area and I am so happy that we can provide these kids with a healthy breakfast and access to a strong support system before school.” 

"Since partnering with AFC Bournemouth in 2015, USANA has been committed to the health and performance of their players,” said Brent Neidig, USANA’s chief commercial officer.

“We are thrilled to extend our efforts beyond the field by combating child hunger and leveraging our shared strengths to make a lasting, positive impact on community health.”
