Breakfast Club Of Canada and The PEAK present the first ever, absolutely free, Breakfast in the Park community festival!This will be fun, family-friendly, community event. Local bands BESTiE, Cobra Ramone, and Mark & Bobby will keep the afternoon full of fun, live music. We’ll also have some of our fantastic friends such as COBS Bread, Fentimans, and Tacofino Commissary serving up delicious treats. There’ll be lots of fun games and activities for kids, so bring the whole family!
We want to engage with our community and the public to create awareness of the Breakfast Club and our mission. We want to show Vancouver who we are and what we do, highlight the need for breakfast programs and identify what it would take to implement breakfast programs in all waitlisted schools.
1 in 5 students in British Columbia go to school hungry, and we want this to change. We are supporting 107 school breakfast programs in BC and we have 69 schools waiting for funding.
It costs $1 a day to feed a student breakfast. Breakfast doesn’t just nourish students’ bodies – it nourishes their minds. A healthy breakfast in the morning helps students focus in class, boosts confidence and self-esteem, and reduces bullying at school.
10,000 students in Western Canada are on our waitlist for a school breakfast program. Let’s work together to help our children and youth and give them the ingredients they need succeed.
We are looking forward to an awesome community event and hope you will join us!
