Breakfast for Learning E-Newsletter: December 2015
A MEANINGFUL END TO 2015!
“We have one particular
student whose attendance and attitude was poor. After his first day at the
program, I noticed that he wasn't eating anything. I asked him why he wasn’t
having any food and he said that he couldn't afford it. I told him that he
didn’t have to pay and to help himself. The look on his face was priceless; he
couldn't believe it. Now he has regular attendance and his attitude towards
school is much better. He is getting good grades and a full belly thanks to
Breakfast for Learning.”
The stories we hear
from students, staff and program coordinators truly demonstrate the impact that nutrition programs have on the lives of the children we help serve.
We are grateful for
what we have accomplished together in 2015.
When a child goes to school hungry, it is very difficult for them to
stay focused and learn. Breakfast for Learning is helping children and youth across
Canada to ensure that they attend school ready for success.
Thank you to all of the donors and
supporters who help make this transformation possible. We are excited about the work that lies ahead
and what we can accomplish together in 2016!
