Our Impact


$88 Million Ways We're Feeding Better Futures

The Grocery Foundation is an Ontario-based not-for-profit representing leaders from Canada’s grocery industry. The Foundation was established in 1979 to enrich the lives and wellbeing of children, helping them learn and succeed.

One in six children in the country live below the poverty line and far too many of them wake without certainty of their next meal. Student nutrition programs are a great way for children to get the nutrition they need and are linked to positive outcomes.

Over the past 38 years, the Foundation has raised in excess of $88 million, which has gone toward over 250 organizations meeting a number of health and wellness needs including providing nutritious breakfasts and snacks for school-aged students.

Many Grocery Foundation companies and their employees also work as volunteers alongside countless community groups nourishing dreams, abilities, and brighter futures.

  • Algoma Family Services
  • Annunciation of Our Lord Catholic Elementary
