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.

This may include a program that is currently on a wait list. Please also be sure to zoom out on the toonie tracker.
