A big thank-you to Laetitia Lerond for the lovely message she posted recently on Instagram.
As I was sipping on my cold tea #mumlife watching my little guy at play, I thought back to the kids I was serving breakfast to this time last year. Right before the Easter weekend.
These kids leave home in the morning with an empty stomach. But Breakfast Club of Canada is there at their school to offer them a balanced breakfast before classes start.
That day was a celebration: we were serving up crêpes and every student got an Easter egg on their way out.
They filled me with such joy and energy. It was a beautiful day.
They laughed at my French accent and were fascinated by my swollen belly. They told me their stories. Some even talked me into giving them a second crêpe…
So as I drank my cold tea and watched my little guy entertaining himself, my heart ached for those kids, as I wondered what was on their plate these days.
The Club’s funds are being redistributed to high-risk communities and partners who are well placed to respond to the most pressing needs for food.
