Toonies for Tummies

Toonies for Tummies in partnership with Global News

The Grocery Foundation funds 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 including an increased risk of suicidal 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 31, you can help by

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

For a list of participating retailers, and for more information, visit groceryfoundation.com/pages/toonies-for-tummies.
