About Breakfast Club of Canada:

Founded in 1994, Breakfast Club of Canada (Club des petits déjeuners) aims to “nurture potential and grow healthy students, giving an equal chance of success to all kids, one breakfast at a time.” In 2013, Breakfast Club of Québec merged its activities with Breakfast Clubs of Canada to form Breakfast Club of Canada. The charity delivers food items to schools, provides funding for food, and provides training and kitchen equipment. School staff and volunteers receive ongoing support from regional coordinators. The charity also runs the Breakfast Makes Me Shine program, with activities aimed to develop, inspire and engage children.

In F2016, Breakfast Club of Canada served over 27 million breakfasts to 163,000 students in 1,455 schools across Canada. Its largest region is Ontario, with 90,558 students across 538 schools receiving 14,942,070 breakfasts, the exact same numbers as in F2015. The cost for the charity to serve breakfast for a school year is $88.23 per student.
