About Breakfast Club of Canada:
Founded in 1994, Breakfast Club of Canada (Club des petits déjeuners) feeds healthy breakfasts to children across Canada. Up to 1 million children may not eat breakfast daily because their families do not have enough money to buy nutritious food. When children do not eat until lunch there are negative effects on their behavior, concentration, and overall academic performance. Additionally, children who go hungry are at greater risk of chronic illness and mental health issues.
Breakfast Club of Canada operates as a collection of 1,598 clubs at different schools. The charity provides food and supplies, funding, kitchen equipment, and volunteers to the individual clubs. Working as a group, Breakfast Club of Canada can buy food and supplies for a lower unit cost than if the clubs worked independently.
Breakfast Club of Canada operates in 4 regions: Western Canada, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada. As a whole, the charity served 33 million meals to 203,852 students in F2017. Having served 19 million meals in F2017, the largest region is Ontario.
Results and Impact: Starting in 2015, Breakfast Club of Canada decided to compile and analyze data related to programming. In F2017, 30 schools with new breakfast clubs were surveyed to find the program’s impact. Of these schools, 53% (16) reported greater attendance, 47% (14) saw significantly fewer late students, and 44% (13) saw fewer incidents relating to bullying or drugs. Teachers saw students’ attention spans more than double. There were also half as many physical and mental health issues.
Breakfast Club of Canada is large, with donations of $11.7m in F2017. Funding from governments totaled $855k, representing 5% of revenue. Administrative costs were 2% of revenues, and its fundraising costs were 24% of donations. For every dollar donated, 74 cents go towards the charity’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. Breakfast Club of Canada has $5.4m in total funding reserves, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 47%. This means that the charity can cover less than 6 months of its annual program costs using its existing reserves, showing a need for funding.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by Breakfast Club of Canada. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
