One of the first school breakfast clubs in Britain has just completed six years of serving up a nourishing start to the day for children in Bethnal Green thanks to online shoppers.
The Magic Breakfast charity has been running the club at St John's Church primary school since 2013, which has now had funding from Amazon for the past three years.
"Not every child unfortunately is able to have breakfast at home," Magic Breakfast's Alex Cunningham said.
"A healthy breakfast gives children the fuel to make the most of their morning lessons, so it's our mission to support breakfast provisions in areas of disadvantage."
The pupils have a healthy start with cereals, bagels and fruit juice during term time.
