b) To raise the funds necessary to deliver these programs.

c) To provide education in regard to proper nutrition to those children participating in the programs.

d) To serve as a link between the community of Brandon and the program sites.

e) To build strong families and successful children and youth through community partnerships.

f) To ensure that every child attending school has an opportunity to eat breakfast and be better prepared to learn.

History

Brandon’s Food For Thought began its work in Brandon in 1997 when funds were allocated by the Canadian Living Foundation to address the issue of children going to school hungry. Our goal is not to remove Parental responsibility but to educate the children, their families and our entire community about the effect that hunger has on a child’s ability to learn.
