At ConAgra Foods, we believe that food is a critical part of a family’s everyday quality of life, happiness and success. That’s why ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation are committed to improving the quality of life of millions of families by taking action to solve child hunger.

ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation take a year-round approach to address child hunger with non-profit partners. In the US, our Foundation partners with some of the nation's top non-profit organizations that are making a difference.

We actively seek partnerships with results-driven organizations that provide high-impact direct service programs; strategically build their capacity to reach more children and/or leverage their expertise in outreach and community building to enhance public policy; and increase awareness of the issue of child hunger locally, regionally and nationally.

We know the Grocery Foundation's Toonies for Tummies has a similar approach here in Ontario and in Canada with 100 per cent of funds raised through its campaign going back to kids and programs that help feed them. We also know that it's having a direct impact on the success of kids, including their academic performance.

ConAgra Foods brands Snack Pack ® & Del Monte ® are proud sponsors of Toonies for Tummies campaign and we thank you in advance for joining us in this very important initiative that helps to address child hunger in our communities.

Our commitment to ending child hunger expands to food donation, engaging employees as volunteers and conducting promotions to mobilize our consumers to support food and meal programs for children and families when they need it most.

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.
