Burnbrae Farms is part of your community. We are proud to give back in many ways, as we strive to support and enhance the lives of Canadians one egg at a time.

We are especially proud to continue our support for the annual ‘Toonies for Tummies’ campaign to help ensure Canadian school children are well-nourished and ready to learn. Studies show that breakfast is important for a child’s brain power. In fact, breakfast-eaters are better at tasks requiring attention and memory, compared with kids who skip the morning meal.[1] But it’s estimated that one in three children will arrive at school hungry, so it’s vital for companies like Burnbrae Farms to help fill the hunger gap.

Children will benefit from your donations – and ours – which will fund breakfast and snack programs in your own community. Together we can fill hungry tummies and help fuel active children.

This year’s Toonies for Tummies in-store program features our EGG Creations!, which are just as nutritious as our shell eggs, but even more convenient for busy days – just shake and pour! EGG Creations! are packed with protein, plus vital nutrients such as vitamin A, E, B12 and iron. EGG Creations! are made with real eggs and tasty fresh ingredients and are a kid-friendly option that help nourish bodies and enrich growing minds.

Help Us Make Breakfast a Reality for a Hungry Child

Chasing dreams should be part of every child’s day. Going without breakfast shouldn’t be.


We are so grateful to Canadians who support Toonies for Tummies during our annual store campaign and, year-round, online.

You may know on April 16th, the Federal Government confirmed plans to support student nutrition programs. Specifically, the budget has announced the creation of a National School Food Program, which will provide $1 billion over five years to Employment and Social Development Canada, Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, and Indigenous Services Canada, starting in 2024‑25.

You may wonder what does this government funding mean specific to the need and our efforts to fundraise?

Without a doubt, we continue to need your support. While many student nutrition program leaders are encouraged by the incremental government support, many have taken to the news and social media to confirm even with this support, funding gaps will persist.

The Grocery Foundation's Vision, that no Canadian child goes to school hungry, remains fully intact. Our work continues and remains vital to support hungry children through their school’s student nutrition program. There is no change whatsoever in our focus, our mission, or our reliance on your support.

The programs we help fund are universal in nature. That means all children who require a healthy meal have access. Those on the front lines of these programs affirm their positive impact and positive halo beyond the day’s nutrition, from attendance, behaviours to the school community and mental health. The programs you help fund also support foundational nutrition knowledge and social skill building, as many programs include mechanisms for student involvement in menu planning, food preparation and serving of food to peers.

Thank you for choosing to support hungry children in your community, nourishing their health, well-being, academic success while fostering their school community. With your continued support, we will continue to help dreams take flight and nourish over 3,000 programs and neighbourhoods, yours among them.
