The organization is recognized for its promotion of Quebec food products and for its sourcing from local food partners.
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.
“The Club recognizes the importance of promoting Quebec foods in order to promote healthy, local and sustainable food in breakfast programs in Quebec,” explains Tommy Kulczyk, President and CEO at Breakfast Club of Canada. “The well-being and development of children are our priorities and being able to accomplish our mission while offering local products that meet the highest standards in terms of nutritional requirements is a great accomplishment. We are very proud of this important recognition which allows us to continue to nurture the potential of children in Quebec.”
The Aliments du Québec au menu program, developed by Aliments du Québec and Équiterre, with the support of the ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec, recognizes institutions that put Quebec products on the menu in their service. This program also includes a support component that allows the Club to establish longer-term targets and to be monitored in achieving them.
By joining the Aliments du Québec au menu program, the Club recognizes the importance of the national Quebec food purchasing strategy by promoting Quebec products in its breakfast programs and demonstrates its clear commitment to maintaining and expanding its network of close partners. The organization is working to maintain this supply of foods from Quebec and continues to collaborate with the agri-food ecosystem to add more whenever possible.
