Nourishing our children’s future with the Breakfast Club of Canada

GardaWorld is proud to support the Breakfast Club of Canada, an organization that provides nutritious breakfasts to children in need. Active in 1,300 schools across Canada, the Club supplies meals to 152,000 youth daily.

 

Donations go a long way.

Last year, the Breakfast Club of Canada served 24 million breakfasts. With a donation of just 1$, the Club is able to fill the belly of a hungry child with toast, a drink, fruit, cheese, and yogurt.

 

A healthy breakfast makes all the difference, especially to young students who need to concentrate in school. When you start your day off right, you help set yourself up for success!

How did we come to support this cause?

Pierre-François Hervieux, Director of Business Development for Security Services at GardaWorld, watched his childhood friend, Martin Duhamel, get involved with the Breakfast Club for the past 4 years.

 

What started as a good deed, turned into a true mission; Martin's initial goal was to raise $25,000 for the cause, and today he has reached over $194,000! Pierre-François chose to support his friend, and GardaWorld agreed to participate by encouraging his team's contribution.

 

Whether we’re supporting people locally or abroad, corporate social responsibility is part of our core mission. Visit the Breakfast Club of Canada for more information.
