Boucherville, June 23, 2022 – As the school year comes to a close, Breakfast Club of Canada is proud to announce its participation in the Aliments du Québec au menu recognition program for its promotion of Quebec food products in its menus and its 72% sourcing from local food partners.

Back in person, the event brought together participants from the business and educational sectors to benefit the cause

 

Boucherville, April 14, 2022 – This morning, at the Hôtel Mortagne, in compliance with local sanitary measures, hundreds of people from the educational and business communities took part in the 16th edition of the Déjeuner des Grands event. As life continues to be marked by the effects of the pandemic and rising food prices, people in Quebec continue to demonstrate their dedication to the cause and be present for the well-being of children.

 

The event, which returned in person this year, was held in the form of a morning show hosted by Benoît Gagnon, radio host and Club ambassador, celebrating 25 years with the organization. Several special guests and Club ambassadors participated, including Geneviève Everell, author, speaker, CEO and chef-owner of Sushi à la maison, Laurent Paquin, comedian, Thomas Nepveu, professional karting driver, Philippe Langlois, founder and owner of Philippe & Co. and the group 2Frères who put on a musical performance.

 

“It is events like this that make me particularly proud to have been a Breakfast Club of Canada ambassador for the past 25 years,” explains Benoît Gagnon. “Seeing the community come together and rally around the cause is something really special. As a father, I am very proud to be part of this important event.”

 

The event brought together participants from all regions of Quebec with the goal of giving children the energy they need to learn. An impressive total of $85,946 was raised this year thanks to the generosity of all the participants.

 

In order to shine a light on the realities and the challenges that the Club faces, Benoît Gagnon welcomed Tommy Kulczyk, President and CEO of Breakfast Club of Canada to discuss the issues, the growing needs and the positive impacts of breakfast programs.

 

“In Quebec, the Club reaches more than 67,000 children in over 480 programs each day, but the needs continue to grow,” said Tommy Kulczyk. “The Club wants to ensure that it can continue to reach the considerable number of children who currently benefit from a breakfast program and extend its reach. The goal is to provide constant support and help children achieve their full potential. It is by working together with our important partners, donors, volunteers and other stakeholders that we will achieve this.”

Boucherville – April 7, 2022 – Today, the Government of Canada renewed its commitment to working in the coming year with provinces, territories, municipalities, Indigenous partners and other stakeholders to develop a National School Nutritious Meal Program. The Club welcomes this mention in Federal Budget 2022, which marks another step towards a future where no child starts their day on an empty stomach.

 

“As many stakeholders, the Club has worked tirelessly to put the needs of children in Canada on the national agenda,” explains Judith Barry, Co-Founder and Director, Government Relations at Breakfast Club of Canada. “Budget 2022 recognizes that children cannot and must not start their day on an empty stomach. Thank you, Prime Minister Trudeau, and Minister Freeland, for making children’s food access in Canada a priority so that they can get they energy they need to learn.”

 

It takes an entire team to effectively promote access to nutritious food for children. Partners, donors and other stakeholders represent real financial leverage in the approach for government funding, as the Club’s success is based on combined efforts from all. This commitment from the Government of Canada would never have been possible without your commitment to children across the country.

Their day souldn't start with hunger

Children shouldn’t have to start their day hungry 

 

Boucherville, September 1, 2021 – Breakfast Club of Canada kicks-off its Back-to-School campaign and is appealing to the generosity of its partners and Canadians everywhere to ensure it can continue to reach the considerable number of children that have benefitted from these programs over the past year. The Club currently supports over 3,183 programs in academic and community settings and reaches 490,974 children each day. This represents an increase in attendance between 5% and 100%, depending on the province, for breakfast programs in Canada compared to the previous year. Due to the pandemic, more children are at risk of going to school on an empty stomach, which is reflected in the increased program attendance. 

 

“While a return to a new normal is slowly approaching, the effects of the pandemic are still very present,” explained Tommy Kulczyk, General Manager of Breakfast Club of Canada. “We have seen an increase in attendance in programs across the country and we need to be able to continue to sustain the increasing demands. The Club’s objective is to reach more and more children each day and this crucial funding will help us move forward.” 

 

Breakfast Club of Canada is raising awareness and funds to able to deliver breakfast programs in innovative and collaborative ways, no matter what Back-to-School looks like in each province.  Based on recent data, nearly 2 million children are at risk of starting their day hungry. This represents 1 in 3 children who are at risk if going to school on an empty stomach every morning. 

 

“This is a time of year that should excite students and families across the country, not leave them feeling concerned about their nutrition,” declared Judith Barry, Co-Founder, Director of Impact and Provincial & Territorial Government Relations at Breakfast Club of Canada. “We have a responsibility to come together to ensure that hunger does not prevent any child from learning and succeeding. It only takes $2 to provide a nutritious breakfast to a child in need. Any type of donation, big or small, can have a significant impact for youth across the country.” 

 

Support the cause in style 

As part of this year’s campaign, the Club has designed limited edition merchandise to raise additional funds. An online pop-up shop will launch on September 8 at 10 a.m., with a limited number of hoodies to be sold. This is an opportunity to add a stylish item to your wardrobe and raise awareness about the cause. For each item sold, $20 will be donated to the Club to help children across the country start their day off the right way. 

 

In addition to making a purchase from the online store, there are other ways people can contribute to this campaign:

Montreal, August 4, 2021 – Today, the Government of Canada revealed the details of a funding package to help fight food insecurity across the country. A total of $ 25 million will be allocated to Breakfast Club of Canada for the 2021-2022 school year as part of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Emergency Food Security Fund. 

“The pandemic continues to have a significant impact on families, and children are among the most vulnerable to food insecurity,” explained Tommy Kulczyk, General Manager at Breakfast Club of Canada. “In Canada, nearly 2 million children are at risk of going to school hungry each morning. This announcement is very good news, and we are grateful to be receiving this emergency funding from the Government of Canada. It is certainly a step in the right direction. “ 

The one-time government funding announced this morning will be used to meet the urgent needs of the most vulnerable people over the coming months. Adapting to pandemic restrictions, the Club and its network of partners are offering even more innovative and collaborative food programs by working with schools and local organizations. 

While these emergency funds will be used to support the breakfast programs currently in place, the demand is still growing. A large number of schools are still on the waiting list and attendance in already supported programs has increased significantly in the past year. The needs outpace the Club’s capacity to respond. 

With the important support of the Government of Canada, financial partners and generous Canadians, the Club works every day to reach as many children as possible across the country. These funds will be very useful in providing emergency aid this year, but there is still much work to be done to ensure that hunger does not prevent any child from learning and succeeding.

Montreal, July 8, 2021 – Breakfast Club of Canada announced today that the President and Founder, Daniel Germain, will be stepping down from his role as president after more than 26 years with the organization. He will nevertheless continue to actively support the Club’s mission in his capacity as founder.  

 

Since 1994, Breakfast Club of Canada has been nurturing children’s potential by making sure as many of them as possible have access to a healthy morning meal before school, in an environment that allows their self-esteem to grow and flourish. But the Club is much more than a breakfast program, it takes a broader approach that is based on engagement, enrichment and empowerment, teaming up with communities and local partners to develop solutions adapted to their specific needs. Breakfast Club of Canada brings together hundreds of thousands of students and volunteers every morning who connect over a nutritious breakfast. More specifically, nearly 300,000 students are reached every day in communities across the country, including close to 300 First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities.  

 

“The Board of Directors applauds the extraordinary work of Daniel Germain. He is a visionary and a remarkable pioneer in social entrepreneurship and food security across the country. Today, thousands of children have access to breakfast each day thanks to the path he has created. The Club is now a mature organization and is well positioned to meet the growing needs and help feed even more children across the country.” 

— Louis Frenette, Member of Breakfast Club of Canada’s Board of Directors 

 

“I’ve been preparing for the administrative handover of my duties for a few years now. It is with a sense of accomplishment that I’m saying goodbye to my role as president. I’m leaving behind an established team of professionals, who are driven and determined to help lead the efforts to promote school nutrition in Canada. I am extremely grateful to the thousands of volunteers, school staff members and Club employees who have contributed to our mission over the years, as well as all those who continue to do so every day, as well as the board members who have stood up for the organization and taught us a great deal about strategy, governance and management. My thanks also go out to the passionate partners we have teamed up with, some of whom have been with us from the very start. In the coming months, I’ll have the chance to reach out to many of these volunteers, employees and partners to thank them personally for being part of this journey, which turned into more than I ever could have imagined. A special thank you to Judith Barry, my ally from day one, for your unwavering support for this crazy dream of ours, which has become so important and so meaningful to so many.”  

 Daniel Germain, President and Founder, Breakfast Club of Canada 

 

“As Daniel moves on from his duties as president of Breakfast Club of Canada, he’s leaving much more than a long tenure behind. We will continue to carry this great responsibility and push our limits for the well-being of children, just as he did so well over the past 26 years. The team is ready to continue this important work and to surpass themselves to always do better for the children, as Daniel has always encouraged me to do.’’ 

— Judith Barry, Co-Founder, Director of Impact and Provincial & Territorial Government Relations, Breakfast Club of Canada 

 

Daniel Germain will announce his future plans in the coming weeks and will take the opportunity to highlight some of the organization’s key achievements over the years.
