Charity of Choice

Breakfast for Learning (BFL) was founded in 1992 as the first and most comprehensive national organization in Canada dedicated to the direct support of school nutrition programs and the healthy development of children and youth. Knowing that when a child is hungry- it’s hard to learn, Breakfast for Learning’s mission is to ensure that every child in Canada attends school well-nourished and ready to learn.

Having served over 300 million meals, Breakfast for Learning champions a made-in-Canada model that brings together private, public and volunteer sectors to provide food in caring, community-centred programs; over 30,000 dedicated volunteers deliver breakfast, lunch and/or snack programs across the country, nourishing the minds and bodies thousands of children and youth.

Working to empower communities to start and sustain child nutrition programs, Breakfast for Learning offers nutrition grants, nutrition education materials, access to a team of registered dietitians and nutritionists, equipment funding, volunteer development and award winning best practices tools. Breakfast for Learning also supports ongoing research and child nutrition education that demonstrates the link between proper nutrition and learning.

Karen Kelloway is an active member of the Nova Scotia Chapter for Breakfast for Learning. A portion of all royalites from her books go to Breakfast for Learning.
