The club and its partners (including retailers such as Walmart and Costco) currently run more than 3,500 school nutrition programs, with a couple hundred schools (and counting) on the waitlist.
In the absence of a National School Food Program and temporary emergency funding from the government, maintaining support for existing programs during the upcoming 2022-2023 school year is expected to be a struggle as the organization grows more reliant on individual and corporate contributions.
According to revenue projections, in order to maintain the school nutrition programs already backed in part by the Breakfast Club of Canada, the organization anticipates a financial shortfall of a "couple million" for the upcoming school year.
At this time, no new additional breakfast programs can be supported.
The Back-to-School Campaign, the Club's largest fundraising campaign of the year, will run until Oct. 30, 2022.
