Backed by its network of corporate partners, Breakfast Club of Canada is setting up an emergency fund to support breakfast program enrollees and local community organizations that assist food-insecure families and children throughout Canada during the COVID-19 crisis. Breakfast Club of Canada invites community organizations that wish to apply for a special grant to fill out an online application.
The emergency fund will:
- Focus on food-insecure households with children across Canada, including those in Indigenous communities
- Target high-need neighbourhoods
- Be administered in collaboration with respected community organizations that are familiar with and rigorously apply hygiene and sanitation measures associated with handling food as well as the requirements developed by public health authorities to control the spread of COVID-19
