National Breakfast Day #shareyourbreakfast
It's heart breaking to know that one in 10 Canadian children live in poverty and are at risk of going to school on an empty stomach. On Thursday, March 8 across the country Kellogg’s will be surprising Canadians with free mini-packs of Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal to raise awareness about our country's hungry children. In return, they are donating to their National Breakfast Day charity partners - Breakfast Clubs of Canada and Breakfast for Learning. In essence, a bowl for you will equal a bowl for a hungry child.
You can make your own donation by visiting www.breakfastclubscanada.org or www.breakfastforlearning.ca.
Studies have shown that breakfast can help kids boost their academic performance – improving behavior, reducing absences and tardiness and increasing focus and physical performance.
Use hashtag #shareyourbreakfast to spread the word on March 8th.
