“Breakfast for Learning came to my rescue, helping to start a nutrition program in my school that made sure I had two meals at school each and every day. Had this not happened to me, I believe I may not be here today. I truly believe that the Breakfast for Learning program saved my life, my education and my hope for a better future.” – Breakfast for Learning, Nutrition Program Participant
Started in 1992, Breakfast for Learning is Canada’s first established and one of the largest national charities dedicated to school based nutrition programs. Working to support communities in every province and territory, we help thousands of schools start and sustain nutrition programs each year.
Breakfast for Learning supports breakfast, lunch and snack programs, and equipment grants to meet the demands of feeding large groups of children. The support doesn’t stop there. Breakfast for Learning also provides support to ensure programs have the tools and resources needed to run quality, sustainable programs.
Our community-based model encourages the engagement of local expertise and resources, and relies on a dedicated team of community-based volunteers to implement these programs across the country.
Since 1992, Breakfast for Learning has helped four million children and youth enjoy over 638 million healthy meals and snacks making learning possible throughout the school day. Thanks to our generous supporters, we have the following impact in 2016/17:
