The Academy’s Breakfast Club Program was founded in December of 2009. The Club was founded on student need, staff and student effort and very generous donations from: Sinking Ship Entertainment, Dale Jeffries, Breakfast for Learning and My Market Bakery.
It is known that when people are well-nourished, they perform better in school. For this reason we work to ensure that students have access to the healthy breakfasts and snacks.
The breakfast club strives to provide a variety of healthy foods found in Canada’s Food Guide so students are ready to learn!
The menu varies from day to day and includes:
- a selection of baked goods (including whole grain breads)
- fresh fruit
- cheddar cheese
- cream cheese
- butter and jam
The nutritional benefits are just one advantage of the program. There is also something very special about what happens when people gather around food: the conversations that ensue, the jokes, the sharing of information and helpful tips, it is the sense of community that comes with sharing a meal.
