Providing Children with a Positive Start to the Day
The Grocery Foundation has been a long-time supporter of student nutrition programs in Ontario.
Together with the public's assistance, sponsored brand and products, and participating retailers such as; Metro, Food Basics, Longos, and select independent grocers in Ontario, and the new addition of Save-on-Foods in Western Canada... we helped to raise almost $850,000 this year during Toonies for Tummies February 9-23!
From the 2017 Toonies for Tummies campaign, $13,525 in grocery cards will go to the Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington's Food & Friends program. The Foundation has also gifted Food & Friends $13,800 for equipment and food purchases.
- 103 student nutrition programs served over 16,600 students.
- 1,990,000 meals were served including breakfast, morning meals, snacks and lunches.
- $1.45 provides and elementary school breakfast and $0.90 provides a healthy snack.
