It’s back to school time and the local breakfast program in Penticton is in need of volunteers.
This school year, the Feedway Foundation is working with five schools and will be serving up to 1,000 breakfasts a week in Penticton. They are seeking an army of 60-plus volunteers to make this happen.
Feedway Foundation works with Breakfast Club Canada providing a nutritious and consistent menu.
“We all know breakfast is a very important meal, especially for kids. Kids and teens who eat breakfast have more energy, do better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day,” said Feedway Foundation’s Johnny Aantjes.
Feedway Foundation’s goal is to ensure all kids are fed a healthy breakfast every morning before school, where they can interact with their peers in a positive environment.
But the foundation needs help to make this happen.
They are looking for volunteers to help during the school season: select weekdays (or when you can) from 7:30 to 9:15 a.m. at Columbia, Queens Park, Carmi, West Bench and ConnectEd schools in Penticton.
Your duties may include prepping food, serving breakfast, and helping to clean up.

The foundation is always looking for donations with 100 per cent of funds going to feeding children with no administration fees.
