CELEBRATING THE 2013/14 SCHOOL YEAR

As the school year comes to a close, Breakfast for Learning (BFL) is celebrating the successes that we have achieved together. From providing schools across Canada with vital nutrition program funding, to spreading awareness of child hunger through our #FoodFight campaign, to working with schools to ensure they have the resources they need to provide high quality programs. We are proud of these accomplishments and, as supporters, you should be too!

A huge thank you to all our corporate, foundation, monthly and individual donors who helped support Breakfast for Learning and nutrition programs across Canada! Your support enabled BFL to have the following impact:
