Bénévoles à travers le Canada


As we are celebrating International Women’s Day, Breakfast Club of Canada would like to highlight the work of breakfast champions and volunteers.

Every morning, they are up early and ready to make a difference in their students’ lives. In addition to offering them a nutritious breakfast, they create safe and welcoming environments where children can start their day. To mark International Women’s Day, we have asked schools from coast-to-coast-to-coast to nominate one of their breakfast champions. We are proud to recognize their efforts and want to thank each one of them for having a significant impact on children’s well-being!


Alberta (Edmonton)

Amina, bénévole Alberta

Amina has been demonstrating a high degree of flexibility as well as the capacity to organize and take the time to do the best she can. She is a very caring person. All the students, teachers and staff of St. Teresa of Calcutta School are greatly appreciative of her dedication and commitment.


New-Brunswick (Florenceville)

Paula, bénévole New-Brunswick

Paula is the backbone of Carleton North High School’s breakfast program. Every day, she skillfully directs her staff of student assistants to provide nutritious items for over 150 hungry students. Thank you, Paula, for everything you do. You are an amazing team member!


Ontario (Mississauga)

Jamie, bénévole en Ontario

Jamie ensures that the students have milk and nonperishable and perishable breakfast food items daily. She even began delivering fresh fruit and snacks to every classroom to ensure that those who arrive or get hungry later in the morning have an option.


Prince Edward Island (Pinette)

Lana, bénévole à PEI

Lana is our breakfast champion. She always makes time in her day, often coming into school early, to bake, sort snacks and prepare breakfast bins for our students in kindergarten through Grade 9. We are beyond grateful for all the extras Lana does for our school and students. Thanks, Lana!


Quebec (Luskville)

Hélène, bénévole au Québec

Hélène is celebrating her 25th anniversary of being involved with the breakfast program this year. Every morning, with her crew of volunteers, she welcomes students with a smile and a delicious breakfast. She sets a great example for the school and the community!


Saskatchewan (Bienfait)

Theresa, bénévole Saskatchewan

Theresa is an integral part of our breakfast program.  She plans and orders all the food and spends her weekends prepping and baking for the upcoming week, so our students have healthy breakfasts every morning.
