About ONFE’s School Breakfast Program
1 in 5 children in Ottawa live in poverty. This means that thousands of children, through no fault of their own, arrive at school hungry. That’s a serious problem, because hungry kids can’t learn.
As food costs and food insecurity rates soar, demand for the breakfast program also grows. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our community, we anticipate that program needs will continue to grow this year.
