Every staging system sold by Select Staging Concepts is contributing towards hunger eradication in Australian schools.

Select Effect, a social enterprise started by Select Staging Concepts in early 2021, is working to eradicate hunger in Australian schoolchildren. With every staging system sale, Select Staging Concepts donates money from their own profits to help fund Rapid Relief Team Australia’s recent ‘Smarrt Cookie’ initiative with Australian schools.

In 9 months, Select’s support of Rapid Relief Team AU's Smarrt Cookie program, has funded nearly 30,000 meals for Australian children who go to school hungry.

The Smarrt Cookie Initiative

“Every time we receive an order from Australian industries in every Australian state, we donate to RRT, so hungry Australian schoolchildren may receive sustenance with Smarrt Cookies, and the ability to be free of the stigma of being different to other kids,” Select Staging Concepts explained.

“The mental wellbeing of so many children is also improved, and all due to savvy Australian customers’ purchase of our ‘Made in Australia’ staging.”

The Smarrt Cookie Initiative by Rapid Relief Team (RRT) eliminates the effect hunger has on children’s learning at school – ensuring each reaches their full potential.

Engineered to deliver all the nutritional goodness children need, RRT’s Smarrt Cookie bar is a balance of energy, protein, carbohydrates, fats, and fibre.

Alarming statistics from Food Bank Australia’s report ‘Rumbling Tummies’ inspired RRT to develop a nutritional bar to help ensure hunger among school-aged children isn’t a barrier to education.

More than 1 in 5 Australian children have experienced food insecurity in the last 24 months, with 18% of children going to school hungry at least once a week, and 15% going to school without a packed lunch or lunch money, the report stated.

We are so grateful to RRT Australia for initiating this opportunity to contribute just by selling our stage systems.

Select Staging Concepts also thanks their loyal customers, whose support made these monthly donations possible.
