Toonies for Tummies FAQs

How does The Grocery Foundation identify local programs?

The Foundation works with our partners, including the Ontario Student Nutrition Program Network (Ontario), and in western Canada, Breakfast Club of Canada, to identify eligible school-based student nutrition programs. These programs benefit from donations made in-store and online once the campaign ends.

What if I do not see a program in the vicinity of the store where I am shopping?

The Toonie Tracker includes the programs that benefit at this time. The programs which receive funding continues to evolve. Once the campaign ends, we will identify a local program to receive funding. This program will be in the vicinity of the store (where the funds are collected). This may include a program that is currently on a wait list. Please also be sure to zoom out on the toonie tracker.

Why are schools not named?

We do not publish school names for privacy reasons.

Can I direct my funds to a specific program?

No. But you can be assured that your donation will go to a program in the community where the donation is made.

Do you run a student nutrition program in your school and don’t see it listed on the tracker?
