Walmart Canada raises $4.3M for school breakfast program

Walmart Canada has raised $4.3 million, including a $1 million corporate donation for the Breakfast Club of Canada’s Back-to-School fundraising campaign.

The campaign took place in more than 400 Walmart stores and online from Sep. 21 to Oct. 24. 

Walmart Canada is a long-time supporter of the Club’s efforts to help give all children an equal chance at success. The Club says Walmart Canada’s donation will have an important impact on school nutrition programs across Canada, including in remote communities. 

“For more than two decades, we’ve been proudly working with Breakfast Club of Canada to support breakfast programs to fuel students so they can learn and thrive,” says Rob Nicol, vice president, communications and corporate affairs at Walmart Canada. “We recognize the importance of our fundraising campaign, especially during these challenging times. A big thank you to our customers and associates for prioritizing fighting childhood hunger and for their ongoing generosity.”

Since joining forces with the Breakfast Club of Canada 21 years ago, Walmart Canada has donated and fundraised over $67 million. This partnership has been tremendously helpful to the Club in continuing to reach over 420,000 children through more than 3,000 school nutrition programs from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
