Lisa Clowery, Director, Corporate Partnerships, Breakfast Club of Canada says: “Up until COVID-19, we knew that one in four children in Canada was at risk of not eating breakfast and as a result, making it more difficult for them to perform well in school. Further to COVID-19, now one in three children are vulnerable. A lot of families are struggling.”
So, what did Breakfast Club of Canada do? They turned on a dime. They found alternative ways to deliver food but this time – to families. In the months during which schools were closed, the Club supported over 1,000 local charities and schools which reached over 626,000 children.
