We all know the hassles back-to-school can bring: waking the kids up on time, wrangling them to get ready, all the while making sure you’ve packed a lunch and fed them breakfast. With the busy lives we lead, it’s easy to lose sight of the children without access to balanced lunches and healthy breakfasts. Did you know that in Canada, one in five children start the day on an empty stomach due to lack of access to nutritious food?
This year, Breakfast Club of Canada and Goodfood, Canada’s number one meal kit delivery service, are making sure more Canadian kids get the nutritious breakfast they need. The #PayGoodfoodFWD social campaign aims to raise awareness about the nearly one million Canadian children who go to school without breakfast.
From now until October 10, every time you use the hashtag #PayGoodfoodFWD on Facebook or Instagram, Goodfood will provide a nutritious meal to a child in need through the Breakfast Club of Canada.
A nutritious morning meal is a critical part of a child’s day as 60 per cent of learning takes place before lunch. For 22 years, Breakfast Club of Canada has been nourishing children’s potential through access to that healthy morning meal. With ingredients like eggs, fruit, whole wheat toast, yogurt and milk, these well-balanced meals ensure each child is provided with a healthy breakfast to maximize their learning potential.
Now it’s your turn to help! To participate and help pay it forward, all you have to do is follow Goodfood on Facebook or Instagram and comment on the @GoodfoodCA post by tagging a friend and using the #PayGoodfoodFWD hashtag. Goodfood has pledged to donate up to 10,000 meals to kick off the 2017 school year.
