Kickoff of Breakfast Club of Canada’s 25th anniversary year
- 40 million breakfasts served
- 1,809 breakfast programs currently running
- 243,000 children eating breakfast every morning
These are just a few numbers to give you a better idea of what the Club has accomplished over the past quarter of a century.
But rest assured there’s no chance of president and founder Daniel Germain and co-founder Judith Barry resting on their laurels. They’re determined to make sure EVERY child in Canada has access to a healthy morning meal, every single day. That works out to over a million students covered by a national meal program – something every G7 country except Canada already has.
On November 5, Daniel and Judith travelled to Lionel-Groulx School in Longueuil, Quebec – where the whole adventure first began 25 years ago – to commemorate this milestone and stress their commitment to doing even more in the future. Another 100 or so staff members followed their lead, lending a helping hand at breakfast programs across the country.
We also held a brunch event in Boucherville, Quebec, near our head office, where partners, volunteers and employees came to celebrate 25 years of wonderful memories and noteworthy achievements.
There will be other special events between now and November 2020 to mark this important anniversary. Be sure to check back for the latest updates and watch for #BCCturns25 on your favourite social media platform. Click here for some great pictures from the day’s festivities!
