Every day, Breakfast Club of Canada depends on 17,500 volunteers who wake up in the wee hours of the morning to prepare and serve breakfast in schools across the country. Without these remarkable individuals, the Club would simply not exist.
Our volunteers are happy to tell you about their experience with the Club!
“My favourite moment at the Club is definitely when the first kids of the day walk into the cafeteria and service begins. It’s at that moment I realize that waking up early to see how happy these kids are to receive breakfast is totally worth it.”
“All it takes is one morning as a volunteer at the Club. You will leave with a smile on your face, feeling fulfilled and proud for having accomplished such a good deed.”
“Children have a gift: being able to see beautiful things within us that no one else notices, and they have the courage to point them out to us. It’s very humbling. Kids have less preconceptions and they let us feel without judgment. There are mornings where they literally comfort me.”
“I started volunteering in Grade 5 because I liked seeing kids eat breakfast before school. I knew which kids didn’t eat breakfast, because they complained about how hungry they were all day. I knew that if I was a volunteer there, more of my friends would come eat breakfast at the club!”
“I love helping to give my friends breakfast. It’s my favourite part of my day at school!”
