Breakfast for Learning E-Newsletter: November 2014

We recently received the following letter from a secondary school teacher and wanted to share it with you.  It is stories like this that show the true impact of what your support is accomplishing across Canada each school day. Thanks to you, thousands of children and youth are receiving the nourishment they need to fuel their bodies and minds.

“Dear Breakfast for Learning,

It only takes a look into a child’s eyes and face and to know you have made a difference. One story that will be with me forever, is a student who came to me with very open eyes and a small tear and said “thank you, I have not eaten in two days because we had no food at home.” Then he said, “I think I am ready for classes now because my stomach does not ache.”  His whole face showed relief! It warmed my heart to know I made a difference in this child and I want to share that Breakfast for Learning made a big difference in this child - you gave us the opportunity to give a hungry boy food for his soul. Thank you for making a difference- this is only one story of many- know that without your contribution we could not make their hunger go away but now we are feeding their empty stomachs.  Thank you!!”
