Thank you to Tracy Moore for her continued support and passion for student nutrition.

Suffice it to say, we all can lend our time, talents and influence to helping feed hungry children.

Thanks in advance for supporting #TooniesforTummies and children in your local communities by making a donation.

Your funds help children like these adorable little ones who are heading back to classroom with healthy snacks for mid-morning break.

We're hoping to raise $1M. Every toonie counts.

This am, Tracy Moore helped turn the January rain into warm smiles with a visit to a local student nutrition program in her hometown Toronto.

Tracy, the official Ambassador of Toonies for Tummies, is a mom of two school-aged children and knows how vital it is that they are well nourished.

Check out just a few photos heading into the Ontario launch of the campaign, February 8-22nd. See the full list of campaign dates and participating retailers and sponsors, and track your toonie at

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.
