What is The Children's Breakfast Clubs?
The Children’s Breakfast Clubs is a non-profit charitable organization that believes every child is entitled to a nutritious breakfast. An estimated 4,000 meals are served each week in the 20+ clubs across the Greater Toronto area. The organizations also support other initiatives such as their Winter Coat Drive.
What exactly is the Winter Coat Drive?
The Children’s Breakfast Clubs’ goal for this year’s Coat Drive is to collect 40,000 clean, good quality, gently used winter coats, hats, mitts and warm winter clothing to ensure no child goes cold. With its support, Youngs Insurance hopes to surpass this goal, ensuring more warmth is spread this winter season.
How can you help?

More About The Childrens' Breakfast Clubs
In 1984, after consultation with community residents and the Metropolitan Toronto Housing Authority, the first Children’s Breakfast Club was opened in the Jane/Falstaff community. It was determined that many community needs and concerns could be addressed with a breakfast program; including a nutritious start to the day, a safe place for parents to leave their children when they go to work and a warm and caring environment where children feel safe and supported. Today, the Children’s Breakfast Clubs operate programs in 20+ communities. For more information, please visit www.breakfastclubs.ca
