This year’s virtual Spark Soirée will look a little different, but the reality is your help is needed more now than ever!


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 the program will grow by up to 4,000  children and youth this year alone! 


Details will follow in the coming weeks about how the Spark Soirée will transition online for this year and we hope we can count on your continued support.
