The Grocery Foundation helps fund over 5,000 student nutrition programs across Western Canada, Ontario and Atlantic Canada. It’s estimated two million children are now at risk of going to school on an empty stomach. That’s one in three Canadian children.

Studies confirm that food insecurity is linked to a higher likelihood of poor mental health and is associated with higher risk of suicidal thoughts, mood and anxiety disorders.

That’s why Global News and Grocery Foundation are partnering for Toonies for Tummies, benefitting student nutrition programs supporting school-aged children in your community.

From now until March 20, you can help by:

  • Making a donation online
  • Adding to your grocery bill at your local grocer.
