Due to ongoing safety precautions surrounding COVID-19, breakfast programs across the country have been shut down. While we understand social distancing must be observed in order to flatten the curve, this puts additional stress on the thousands of families and children who depend on the nourishment they receive from the Club every day, and we must find new ways to support them.
Breakfast Club of Canada will be issuing special grants for community organizations to help ensure children and families have access to food during the crisis. Our guiding principles for providing funding are:
• To support Canadian families facing food insecurity (specifically those with school-age children)
• To support high-need neighbourhoods across Canada
• To support Indigenous, remote and fly-in communities
• To maintain credibility: All organizations receiving support must be established and trusted to apply processes and resources in the best interest of public health and safety.
