We gratefully accept financial and in-kind food, supplies, and equipment donations from businesses, service groups, organizations, and individuals. 100% of donations are spent on nutrition programs.
Tax receipts for financial contributions are available. Cheques can be made to the Peterborough County-City Health Unit, Jackson Square, 185 King Street, Peterborough ON, K9J 2R8.
There are many tasks that make a quality program happen such as shopping, preparing and serving food, fundraising, record keeping and communicating with families, students, staff and volunteers.

Breakfast Programs Make a Difference
Students with access to a breakfast program have reduced risk for disease, are more likely to come to school and participate in class, have better test scores, and are more likely to graduate.
Food for Kids Peterborough and County, a community partnership, has supported Breakfast Programs in local elementary and secondary schools for over 20 years. Dedicated volunteers provide healthy breakfasts and help to ensure that all students are able to attend classes well-nourished and ready to learn to their full potential.
