Danone Canada Announces Multi-Year $1.2 Million Commitment to Breakfast Club of Canada


MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Over the next five years, Danone Canada is donating $1.2 million to support the opening of school-breakfast programs in collaboration with Breakfast Club of Canada to battle food insecurity.

Initially, Breakfast Club of Canada will reach an additional 1,000 children every day in the following schools: Sam Pudlat Elementary School in Cape Dorset, Nunavut; Kisemattawa School in Shamawattawa, Man.; Gift Lake School at the Gift Lake Metis Settlement in Alberta; and Mistassiniy School in Desmarais, Alta. Additional schools will follow in 2022 and subsequent years.

“Over the past year, there has been a significant increase in attendance and in the need for additional breakfast programs,” says Tommy Kulczyk, general manager of Breakfast Club of Canada. “We believe helping children get the energy they need to learn is a shared responsibility and are truly grateful for the relationship we have built with Danone Canada, which shares our commitment to put children first.”

“Danone’s mission to bring health through food has never been more important,” says Dan Magliocco, president of Danone Canada. “As a Certified B Corp, we’re committed to using our business as a force for good, and there’s no better way to do so than to help bring healthy breakfasts to children. We look forward to building upon our longstanding relationship with Breakfast Club of Canada as we strive for a healthier world in which all children can reach their full potential.”
