Breaking bread builds communities

Encana has teamed with the Breakfast Club of Canada to provide healthy breakfasts in four schools in our operating communities.

Many children start their days without a breakfast, the most important meal of the day.

To help tackle this problem in two of the communities where Encana operates, we’ve partnered with The Breakfast Club of Canada in Dawson Creek and Wembley to provide nourishing breakfasts for elementary students.

With the program, the students at Wembley Elementary, Helen E. Taylor School, Tremblay Elementary and Pouce Coupe School enjoy nutritious food and beverage choices as recommended by Canada’s Food Guide.

“Breaking bread builds communities,” says Patsy Vik, Lead of Community Relations for Encana. “Encana operates in these communities, and this is one way for us to give back.”

At the four schools, the breakfast program is coordinated by staff and volunteers who look forward to each morning. “For kids to know that breakfast is waiting for them really makes all the difference, so we appreciate Encana’s support through Breakfast Club of Canada in making this happen,” says Jennifer Sutherland, Pouce Coupe Elementary.

The Breakfast Club of Canada is a non-profit organization that provides funding, equipment, training and support to school breakfast programs across the country. Last year The Breakfast Club of Canada helped almost 130, 000 Canadian students across ten provinces, and two territories, start their days with full stomachs.
