Winnipeg Harvest Launches School Breakfast Program for the Weekends

Currently, people under the age of 18 make up 41 percent of food bank users in the province and Winnipeg Harvest is looking to change that.

There are breakfast programs in place for the weekdays but this new one targets those days when kids aren’t at school.  Taking place at Mulvey School, the new program called Breakfast2Go will provide easy-to-make breakfasts for children on the weekends at Mulvey School.

Through Breakfast2Go, every Friday children will have the option to take home two breakfast packages for the weekend, and the meals require little to no adult supervision to prepare.  The program at Mulvey School will represent a test phase for Breakfast2Go. If successful, Winnipeg Harvest and Breakfast2Go partner, Breakfast Club of Canada, are hoping to extend the program to more schools throughout the city.
