All it takes is a toonie to make difference for one child. So many children go to school missing the most important meal of the day. A luxury that so many of us take for granted. Did you now that 1 in 6 children in the country live below the poverty line and far too many of them wake without certainty of their next meal. Student nutrition programs are a great way for children to get the nutrition they need and are linked to positive outcomes. Stats prove that kids in grade 7 and 8 do better in school when they start with a great breakfast!
We were so honoured to be asked to be part of this great initiative and want you to join us in helping attain a 1 Million dollar goal for 2018.
