Breakfast & Food Programs

Hunger is very real in many classroomsHunger has a huge impact on a child's ability to learn and function. When children are hungry, it is hard to focus on what the teacher is saying over their growling stomach and pounding headache. Unfortunately, for too many students this is a daily reality. Thanks to our generous donors, the Foundation can offer breakfast, lunch and snack programs. You are helping school children to focus on their learning.

"A child that comes to school hungry is more likely to have behavioural problems, is less likely to be attentive to what's going on in the classroom. So not only are they not learning but they are disrupting what occurs in the rest of the classroom." 
   - Dr. Paul Hasselback, Medical Health Officer for the mid Vancouver Island region.

School is hard when you're hungry. Please help us feed vulnerable students.
