Local Restaurant, Hopscotch, Supports Feeding Hungry Children

TORONTO, 7 December 2016 – We are pleased to announce that Hopscotch restaurant will be donating the proceeds from their Grand Opening to the Toronto Foundation for Student Success (TFSS) in support of the Student Nutrition Program (SNP) at Niagara Street Junior Public School!

When children are hungry, they can’t focus, and if they can’t focus, they can’t learn. At 826 school and community based SNPs the TFSS and its partners provide students with over 195,000 nutritious meals every school day. 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 and we rely on the support of generous donors, such as Hopscotch!

Hopscotch is committed to working with local schools – Kids are our future and we’re working to help them live healthier and more balanced lives. Hopscotch uses quality fresh ingredients that have been grown and raised responsibly, from local partners and farmers, to create chef-inspired healthy dishes. They aim to enrich the lives of others by taking on-the-go food to new heights by offering nutrient-rich food in an effortlessly convenient way.

Niagara Street JPS, located near Bathurst and King Street West, is a small, vibrant elementary school. The student body is diverse in terms of cultural identity and family income. The SNP at this school is special with three generations of one neighbourhood family volunteering regularly!
