Our success is the result of the combined efforts of a Canada-wide network of organizations dedicated to setting up and running breakfast programs in participating schools. Our strength lies in our commitment to working closely with each program to ensure the optimal use of available resources to reach out to as many children as possible.
Our network of partners care – and care deeply – about children’s health, wellness and academic success. We have brought all the key players – schools, governments, agencies, businesses and community representatives – to the table to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of the 1.5 million young Canadians who are at risk of starting their day on an empty stomach.
We have made the specific needs of Indigenous communities a priority from the beginning. Unfortunately, one out of every two children living in these communities is at risk of starting the day without breakfast. They often live in remote areas where it can be challenging to procure fresh, nutritious food. The unique expertise we have developed over the years helps us find ways to promote healthier eating habits among the younger generations and keep precious culinary traditions alive.
