<p>A Toronto-area program that provides a nourishing breakfast for small children every school morning will now be able to expand its services to reach more kids, thanks to support by Canadian Pacific.</p>
<p>Canadian Pacific and the Breakfast Club of Canada (BCC) have announced the railway has contributed $100,000 with $50,000 earmarked for the opening of 16 new clubs, benefitting about 3,200 children.* </p>
<p>The remaining $50,000 will support the existing 66 clubs in Toronto schools that already reach 18,167 children every morning.</p>
<p>We are excited Canadian Pacific has joined us in advancing the Breakfast Club of Canada mission throughout the Greater Toronto Area,” said Daniel Germain, Founding President of the <em>Breakfast Club of Canada</em>. “As a community we need to show our children that the way to success in life, is through having success in school.* Starting their day in a safe, inclusive environment, with a nourishing meal is an important part of that success equation. We thank CP for its support.” </p>
