Ikea Supports Student Breakfast Programs

Ikea has recently partnered with Breakfast Club of Canada by donating Ikea products and breakfast bags for students utilizing the breakfast club programs.  

Westmount Public School was chosen to receive over 200 Ikea breakfast bags due to the school's close proximity to the London Ikea Pick-up and Order Point location.

Ikea also generously donated an assortment of products such as cups, plates, cutlery, muffin tins, tea towels and more to the Ontario Student Nutrition Programs (OSNP). These items will be useful when providing breakfasts to children across London-Middlesex.

Ikea believes that the Breakfast Club of Canada initiative aligns well with Ikea's core beliefs; providing a more sustainable and healthier life at home and a better life for people and communities.  

Ikea says they "believe that children are the most important people in the world. And that means all children. It means we believe all kids should have access to nature, have equal fortune in their ability to play and learn, and have a belly full of food and a mind full of curiosity. That’s why IKEA Canada chooses to support childhood development across Canada. Whether it’s physical development, play-based learning or just being able to spend family time together, we believe we can have a measurable impact that will be immeasurably important in the lives of the children we support.”

OSNP would like to thank Ikea and Breakfast Club of Canada for their generous donations. As you can see from the pictures, the students at Westmount Public School thoroughly enjoyed starting their day off with the breakfast bags!
