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.
Since 2000, with public and industry support, the Toonies for Tummies campaign has raised $18M.
Toonies for Tummies (#toonies4tummies), brought to you by The Grocery Foundation, is set to return in 2018 to more than 600 Ontario and Western Canada stores including Metro, Food Basics, Longo’s, Save-On-Foods, Buy-Low, Nesters Food Market, IGA and participating independents.
Track your donation at our campaign microsite, tooniesfortummies.ca, be sure to follow us on Twitter (@groceryfndtn, #toonies4tummies), Instagram (@groceryfndtn) and Facebook (@groceryfoundation), as well as our sponsors and retailers for campaign events.
Toonies is made possible through a number of industry partners, including participating retailers and sponsor companies, and shoppers, who make it a priority to donate to local programs at the store and online. Sponsor companies cover the cost of the campaign so that 100% of funds raised go back to children. Be sure to look for and support the campaign sponsors.Learn About Our Current Campaign
The Grocery Foundation works with our student nutrition partners, the Ontario Student Nutrition Program Network (OSNPN) and Breakfast Club of Canada in western Canada to administer the donations collected.
100% of proceeds raised from Toonies stays local, helping either the Ontario Student Nutrition Program Network or Breakfast Club of Canada to feed children.
The Foundation works with our partners, including the Ontario Student Nutrition Program Network (Ontario), and in western Canada, Breakfast Club of Canada, to identify eligible school-based student nutrition programs. These program benefit from donations made in-store and online once the campaign ends.
The Toonie Tracker includes the programs that benefit at this time. The programs which receive funding continues to evolve. Once the campaign ends, we will identify a local program to receive funding. This program will be in the vicinity of the store (where the funds are collected). This may include a program that is currently on a wait list. Please also be sure to zoom out on the toonie tracker.
We do not publish school names for privacy reasons.
No. But you can be assured that your donation will go to a program in the community where the donation is made.
