Breakfast for Breakfast

In Toronto, 1 in 3 children comes to school hungry, and if you’re hungry it’s hard to learn.

The Toronto Foundation for Student Success (TFSS) helps bring nutrition programs directly to TDSB schools. There, students eat a healthy breakfast, lunch, or a snack so that they can focus on learning rather than hunger. We can’t do it alone, we need your help.

During the week of October 16 – 20 help fuel our future by participating in Breakfast for Breakfast. You’ll be helping thousands of hungry students access healthy breakfasts, snacks and lunches every single weekday.


Breakfast for Breakfast is designed to raise awareness as well as funds to help our students. The event can be run a few different ways, depending on what works best for your school.

  1. Ask a group of staff and students to help organize and cook a before school, community-style breakfast that staff and students can purchase.
  2. Identify a group of students, particularly those who like to cook, and bake a number of different kinds of (healthy) muffins and slice up some fruit. In the front foyer, set a table up and offer a grab-and-go breakfast for staff and students to purchase.
  3. Organize a breakfast “spirit day”. Either before school or during lunchtime, ask students to pay an entrance fee for an event where they eat their pre-packed breakfast as you show your favourite breakfast or food movie.

You know your school and your students best. It’s up to you to decide how much you feel a reasonable donation might be. You want the event to be inclusive and fun. And, most importantly, you’ll be helping nourish TDSB’s hungry students!
