THANK YOU TO
BREAKFAST CLUBS OF CANADA
Food for Learning has been awarded a grant from Breakfast Clubs of Canada to support breakfast programs in Hastings and Prince Edward counties. Over a three year period, ten local schools will receive additional support to enhance or initiate a school breakfast program. We will receive $63,050 for food expenses and $35,000 to purchase required equipment - this is a total of $98,050!
It is Breakfast Clubs of Canada’s dream that all children will have an equal chance to start their school day with a nutritious breakfast in an environment that promotes self-esteem. Breakfast Clubs of Canada accomplishes this work with the help of partners across Canada, all committed to the cause of feeding our children’s future.
We look forward to an on-going partnership with this great organization!
Schools throughout Hastings and Prince
Edward counties need volunteers to help them with their breakfast programs. Volunteers are needed to shop for groceries, prepare and serve food to children, assist with paper work and so much more! If you have some time in the mornings and would like to help please contact Kellie Brace (613) 966-1170, ext. 2232.

FEED THE METER 2012
Once again, Food for Learning's Feed the Meter campaign was a great success. Through community donations, sponsorships and funds collected through the parking meters
was raised to support our breakfast, lunch and snack programs.
Throughout the month of December, downtown parking in Trenton, Belleville and Picton was free - however, visitors to the downtown area were invited to continue to pay for their parking by dropping spare change in the parking meters.
In addition, virtual parking meters were placed throughout the communities of Bancroft and Stirling during the same time period, in an effort to raise funds for the student nutrition programs in those communities.
All proceeds from this campaign will be provided to schools in the participating communities to purchase food and supplies for their Food for Learning programs. All funds will remain in the communities where it was collected.
The Food for Learning Committee would like to thank Mayors & Councils, sponsors and the public for supporting this initiative and to help us reduce hunger among school aged children.
