Child Nutrition​

Breakfast Clubs 

BGC Thunder Bay was the first Agency to deliver a hot breakfast program in the schools. We have consistently been delivering breakfast since 1991 in the City of Thunder Bay. We believe that with the proper nutrition, students can better meet their educational goals.

All Breakfast Clubs run 5 days per week from mid-September to the middle of June

Our 8 Breakfast locations are:
St Ann SchoolClaude Garton School
St Jude SchoolAlgonquin School
St Elizabeth SchoolVance Chapman School
Corpus Christi SchoolSt Pius X School

All schools are currently doing a grab & go in the classrooms during the Coivd-19 Pandemic.

When our Breakfast Programs open up again 

Any child that belongs to the school can attend Breakfast Club.

The Breakfast Club is in cooperation with and sponsored by many valued partners. Thank you to United Way, Breakfast
Clubs of Canada, Red Cross Student Nutrition Program and President’s Choice Children’s Charity for funding the Breakfast

Cooking Classes

Cooking classes are done at both locations and are a big hit with all the members. During cooking class, members learn measuring, food safety, budgeting and learn how to make nutritious foods as well as tasty treats.

We have also added a special “Kid Food Nation” cooking program at the Windsor location for members 8 –12. This program is funded through President’s Choice Children’s Charity and is a Registered Program. To get more information or to register contact staff at
