Your first donation will be deducted when you join our monthly giving program. Then, we will automatically deduct the amount you specify on the same day each month. For example, if you make a $25 donation on January 1, 2024, we will deduct $25 on February 1, 2024, and again on the 1st of each subsequent month. If your first donation was made on the 29th, 30th or 31st of any month, and one of the subsequent months is shorter, we will adjust the deduction date to correspond with the last day of that month. If you would like to change the date of your monthly donation, please contact us online or via telephone at 1-888-442-1217.

You can change or stop your donation at any time. Just write us or call us at 1-888-442-1217.

Monthly donations provide the Club with stable, predictable income throughout the year, helping us to provide ongoing support for children. There’s no minimum amount to enroll in the Giving Program. Whatever the amount, your donation makes a big difference every month.

We are grateful for the financial support from the Quebec government, which plays an essential role in our ability to provide nutritious breakfasts to a large number of children.

However, needs persist and evolve. Since its foundation, and more than ever, the Club believes that feeding children is everyone’s business! This mission also requires the generosity of the private sector, the general public and foundations. Together, we can offer children the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The purpose of our guiding principles is to provide a common breakfast program vision for the Club team and our school, community, philanthropic and government partners. These principles act as a compass for focusing our efforts and moving forward together toward the best-possible school breakfast program. Our principles also represent the values we need to uphold when we provide support across the country, meeting the needs and challenges of every school community.

Together with our school partners, we work daily to make our vision of a breakfast program a reality…

Universal: for all students
Reliable: available every school day
Nutritious: offering nutritious, fresh and varied foods, served in accordance with the highest food safety standards
Health-promoting: promotes physical and mental health through education and the creation of a safe and caring environment
Inclusive: responding to special dietary needs and cultural diversity
Engaging: involving students in every aspect of the program
Mobilizing: bringing the community together, from families to businesses, to contribute their time or resources
Sustainable: incorporating practices that protect the ecosystem and stimulate an inclusive local economy (such as local and community sourcing)
Accountable: clearly accountable for its activities and successful initiatives

Many schools are waiting to implement breakfast programs because the need far exceeds the resources available. Launching new programs is a long-term commitment for the Club. For this reason, we need to be sure that we have sufficient and sustainable financial and human resources before rolling out new breakfast programs.

When funding is available to open new programs, schools located in the most underprivileged areas and longest on the waiting list are usually given priority.

Schools retain full control over their menus. However, the Club menus are designed to nourish not only the body, but also the mind. A complete breakfast always contains a product from each of the three food groups in Canada’s Food Guide: vegetables and fruit, whole grains and protein foods.

The products on our menus go through a rigorous selection process conducted by both our Nutrition Committee and Procurement team. The Nutrition Committee regularly updates nutritional guidelines to help school and community partners foster a healthy, sustainable food environment. These guidelines are based on school nutrition data and recommendations from recognized organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), Dietitians of Canada and Health Canada.

For more information, please read our General Nutritional Guidelines or Detailed Nutritional Guidelines.

Setting up a breakfast program at your school is all about bringing together a community that cares about the well-being of your children. The first step towards setting up a program is to submit an online application for support. We accept applications throughout the year from schools, school districts or service centres, group councils and community organizations seeking support for preschool, elementary or high school students. When we have the funds to implement a program, we get in touch with the school to learn more about its situation and determine together the requirements for setting up the program, including, if necessary, funding, equipment and food donations.

Schools are an integral part of the process and are the driving force behind any breakfast program. Whether it’s purchasing food, receiving orders, preparing or serving breakfast, the involvement of the school team or community volunteers is vital to ensuring that the program runs smoothly. This school project is also an opportunity to involve young people and provide them with a volunteer experience that helps develop their leadership potential.

The Club supports schools with expertise in every aspect of setting up and running their program. Each school is assigned a Club coordinator, who provides training, support and online tools.

Every morning, breakfast programs depend on many volunteers who get up at the crack of dawn to prepare and serve breakfast at schools across the country. Please note that you don’t have to be available every day to volunteer for a school’s breakfast program. Also, keep in mind that your school may require a criminal background check before you can get involved.
