Did you know every day one out of three children are at risk of going to school on an empty stomach? That’s seven children in one class and thousands of children in our Halton school neighborhood. But you can help change that by supporting Toonies for Tummies, where you’ll give hungry children in our community a chance to start their day with a much-needed nutritious meal.
When you donate a Toonie at a local participating grocery store in Halton, you help fill a hungry tummy. Participating grocery stores and campaign dates in Halton are below:
- February 3 – 17: Metro and Food Basics locations
- March 17 – 31: Sobeys, Foodland & Fresh Co locations
Toonies raised locally are converted to grocery gift cards and then distributed to school-based student nutrition programs funded by Halton Food for Thought. 100% of donations made in Halton will stay and support Halton schools.
A big THANK YOU from families in the Halton region to both Breakfast Club of Canada and Grocery Foundation for hosting this important annual fundraising campaign.
