Children across Sault Ste. Marie depend on programming provided during the school year to access a healthy breakfast. During the summer months when students are not in school, children in need often go without a daily breakfast.
In an effort to address this situation, the Mayor’s Office partnered with Algoma Family Services, Sault Ste. Marie District Social Services and the United Way of Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma District to launch Every Breakfast Counts in May 2018.
“As a community, we can pull together to address this issue,” said Mayor Christian Provenzano. “We have assembled a great team of community-minded people from Algoma Family Services, Sault Ste. Marie District Social Services and the United Way. Every child in Sault Ste. Marie deserves to have a nutritious breakfast, and I encourage people to support Every Breakfast Counts because every breakfast does count and no child should go hungry.”
“Ensuring children across our community have access to nutritious meals is an identified area of concern, and this initiative will go a long way in helping us assist children in need,” said Mike Nadeau, Sault Ste. Marie District Social Services CAO
