TORONTO – SunCandy Citrus and Breakfast Club of Canada, the country’s leading school breakfast program, are kicking off National Nutrition Month (March) with an exciting new partnership designed to make healthy snacking and eating fun for all ages with the world’s finest citrus products.
Available in stores now, a portion of all SunCandy citrus proceeds will be donated to Breakfast Club of Canada, cementing each organization’s ongoing commitment to developing and fostering healthy eating habits for kids and families. In addition to the portion of proceeds from each sale, SunCandy is proudly supporting Breakfast Club of Canada with an additional donation of 12,000lbs of clementines to be used in school programs across the country.
“We are thrilled to welcome SunCandy as a new partner in our mission to provide greater access to healthy and varied food choices to students,” said Kaitlyn Rooke, Senior Advisor, Corporate & Community Giving, Breakfast Club of Canada. “This partnership is a great opportunity to nourish children’s potential and give them energy to learn.”
With six generations in the produce business, the SunCandy founders have a long-standing commitment to sourcing the highest quality citrus varieties from around the world. As part of its organizational legacy in providing families with access to the best citrus products, from pink Cara Caras to easy-peel clementines and eye-popping blood oranges, SunCandy is proudly supporting Breakfast Club of Canada with a portion of their 2023 sales to positively impact health and learning in children.
“Family is at the heart of everything we do at SunCandy,” said Tara Glazer, Director of Marketing at Fresh Taste Produce BB #:164030. “We believe every child deserves a sweet and juicy start to the day and are proud to support BCC with our donation commitment which we’re celebrating on specially marked bags across the country.”
