  • Provide 2,000 students with a Nutritious Breakfast each day.



The Hamilton Wentworth District School Board has over 18 schools designated as high needs/compensatory education schools that span across the city.  These schools require a great deal of additional supports to assist students in coming to school, prepared to learn.  The approximate student population for compensatory education schools is over 7000.

A snapshot of one school profile includes:  35% coming from broken homes, 5% living on their own and 35% actively involved in English as a second language.  The school currently supports between 80 and 100 students who have combined family incomes of less than $18 000.  Unfortunately, this profile is not uncommon in many of the compensatory education schools.  

The ‘Dogs Breakfast Program will allow students to start the day with a healthy and nutritious breakfast which will make it easier for students to focus on learning.

Community Benefit

In order to ensure that all students achieve their full potential, we know that we must begin to level the playing field. We know that not all our students come to school with same resources, be it economic, social, emotional or health related issues. The HWDSB fights poverty and its effects everyday and we firmly believe that the way out of poverty is through education. Our staff aims to support students living in poverty through all inclusive and non-obtrusive programs so that they are able to learn. The Dogs Breakfast Program will help break some students from the cycle of poverty.

How will the $100K be used?
