At Nature’s Path, our purpose is to always leave the earth better than we found it. That’s why our products are made with always organic, non-GMO ingredients, grown through climate-friendly organic agricultural practices to protect people and the planet. We’re committed to producing better-for-you foods that taste good, feel good, and promote goodness beyond the kitchen.  

Nourishing communities 

For our founders Arran and Ratana Stephens, giving back has been at the heart of the company from the very beginning. For 40 years, they’ve worked tirelessly to spread their values to support people and the planet. 

As part of this philosophy, we’re always looking for ways to support those in need and improve access to healthy food in our communities. This takes shape in many different ways, from our Gardens for Good program, which helps to fund local organic gardens, to our partnerships with local foodbanks through our Eat Well Do Good and Bite4Bite programs. This includes financial contributions, in-kind donations and volunteering to support:  

  • Hunger relief and community feeding programs to alleviate hunger  
  • Endangered species and habitat conservation to support environmental sustainability 
  • Youth and environmental education   
  • Community health and wellness   
  • Furthering the cause of organics and sustainable food systems   
  • Justice, equity, diversion and inclusion 

In the last 14 years, Nature’s Path has donated over $56 million worth of food to local charities, food banks and environmental partners. 

We’re proud to sponsor Toonies for Tummies for the second year in a row and join their mission to provide healthy breakfasts for kids across Canada. By funding crucial student nutrition programs, we can work together to ensure every child has the chance to start the day off feeling healthy and energized.  

We believe in healthy, planet-friendly products 

For us, breakfast is at the heart of our kitchen. We’re dedicated to filling cupboards with organic breakfast products that support a healthy diet and are produced in ways that take care of the planet.  This includes morning favourites like our Heritage Flakes, made with organic ancient grains, organic honey, and sea salt, for a satisfyingly slightly sweet crunch that helps to fuel you for the day.  

Our EnviroKidz cereals are delicious and made with organic ingredients (which parents love) and featuring adorable animals and tasty flavours (which kids love). We donate a portion of proceeds to animal conservation efforts - since 2002, we have raised over $4.8 million towards saving animals around the world through our EnviroKidz give-back programs. 

The future depends on healthy breakfast habits 

We know that eating a nutrient-rich, balanced breakfast can help you feel better and ready to take on the day, and we want to remove the barriers that prevent 2 million children from being able to start their day off feeling strong and focused.  

By supporting Toonies for Tummies, we hope to empower more children and feed their potential, so there’s nothing in the way of the goals they set out to achieve.  


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.
