A nutritious breakfast is the launch-pad for a full day of focused learning.
Providing students in need with a nutritious breakfast – giving them the chance to start their day ready to learn on equal footing with their peers.
With support from individual and corporate donors, volunteers, educators, the City of Ottawa, and the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, we ensure that local children and youth have the energy their growing bodies and developing brains need to succeed in school.
About the Program
Bring a Program to Your School
ONFE’s School Breakfast Program accepts and reviews new program applications once a year.
How Can a School Apply?
Applications must be submitted by the School Principal. Prior to completing an application form, principals need to familiarize themselves with the following supporting documents:
“Not only did the program feed the students but it also allowed us to check in with 40 – 50 students every morning. These brief conversations may seem insignificant but it helped to build a sense of community and care during a school year that has been extremely difficult for all. “
~ Ottawa School Principal, 2021
