Thank You for taking the #ToonieChallenge

Hungry Children Continue to Need Us

Our 2021 #Toonies4Tummies campaign was a tremendous success thanks to many of you who donated online here and in-store at one of our many participating retailers. 100% of your donations will benefit the growing number of hungry children when back-to-school resumes in the fall. Right now, your donations to last year’s campaign are hard at work as many programs continue to face a surge in need and costs associated with delivering nutritious meals to hungry children at home. The cost of individual home meals continues to put a strain on these programs committed to helping children in their local communities. You can continue to support our efforts here and see the programs we’re funding through our Toonie Tracker. We’re adding to it, so check back often.

100% of proceeds raised from Toonies stays local, helping either the Student Nutrition Ontario (SNO) in Ontario or Breakfast Club of Canada in Western Canada and in Atlantic Canada.

The Foundation works with our student nutrition partners, to identify eligible school-based student nutrition programs. These programs benefit from donations made in-store and online once the campaign ends.

The Toonie Tracker includes the programs that benefit at this time. The programs which receive funding continues to evolve. Once the campaign ends, we will identify a local program to receive funding. This program will be in the vicinity of the store (where the funds are collected). This may include a program that is currently on a wait list. Please also be sure to zoom out on the toonie tracker.

In light of Covid-19, stores will have different options available to shoppers beyond donating a toonie at the cash or self check out, where available. The Foundation accepts donations of $25 or more online which are eligible for a tax receipt.

We do not publish school names for privacy reasons.

No. But rest assured donations that are made in store will remain in the local community in the vicinity of the grocery store where the donation is made. For donations made online, we will make every best effort to have those donations benefit student nutrition programs in the region. For certain, donations made online will remain in the province associated with the online donation.

The criteria is determined by the organizations that administer the programs and is based on nutrition guidelines set by each respective province.
