All profits will be dontated to Breakfast Club of Canada

Did you know that Canada is the only country in the G7 that does not offer a national food program in schools?

We know from research that the impacts of hunger reach far beyond a single child. Hunger affects classroom learning (60% of which is done before lunch), behavioral issues such as bullying and social exclusion, as well as overall health and wellbeing.

One in five Canadian children is at risk of starting school on an empty stomach. More than 20 years ago, Breakfast Club of Canada started its mission to nurture the potential and grow healthy students, giving an equal chance of success to all kids, one breakfast at a time. Operating from coast to coast, the Club now helps feed over 200,000 students in 1,600 schools every school morning.

To date, we've donated over $1150 to various children's charities!
