Halton Food for Thought Breakfast
The Breakfast Bash 2019!
In partnership with the community, Halton Food for Thought feeds students, via Student Nutrition Programs healthy food so they can succeed.
Our annual fundraising event – The Breakfast Bash (formerly Annual Spring Breakfast Gala) Friday May 3rd, 2019 helps us raise funding needed to ensure our programs remain strong and sustainable.
Dollars raised will also help us achieve our vision of a Halton region where “no student goes hungry at school” by allowing us to expand our reach to students in Halton schools who currently do not have a nutritious school food program.
Right now, in Halton, 10% of our kids go to school hungry and 34% of kindergarten kids are overweight or obese. We need to play our part to ensure these kids get the healthy food they require and get the message about eating healthy.
Our goal is to raise $68,000 this year which at $0.50 per day for a healthy breakfast, will feed a lot of children.

About Halton Food for Thought
Our history isn’t uncommon; a grassroots group of people who identify a problem and come together to form a solution. In this case, one of the strongest groups you can have behind your cause: Parents.
These Parents noticed that not every child at school had food in their lunch box or that many kids had food that didn’t contain enough nutrients to fuel their minds and bodies for learning.
In 1997, the parents came together and formed an advisory committee to oversee the first 6 official Student Nutrition Programs in Halton. Fast forward to 2007, just ten years later, and HFFT became an incorporated, registered, charity with its own Board of Directors and 63 programs.
As of September 2017, HFFT has partner programs in 130 schools across Halton and feeds more than 27,000 students a week. We have over 2,100 volunteers (including 930 students) and dozens of community partners who all work together to feed students in their communities.
