 The GCVI / St James Breakfast Club 
In close cooperation with school administration, the Breakfast Club provides nutritious breakfast options five days a week during the school year for GCVI students. Regardless of the reason for attendance, the students find a friendly, welcoming environment with adult and university student volunteers. They can learn healthy eating habits; feel cared for and encouraged, be a responsible part of a peer social group and ready to start the day positively.        

 

This is a St James community outreach project serving students of Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute (GCVI). Founded in 1999 by parishioner Vicki Gojanovich, it is staffed and managed by volunteers from St James, operating in partnership with the Breakfast for Learning program through The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington and the administration staff of GCVI.

There is a steering committee, consisting of the Principal of GCVI, St James coordinators of the Breakfast Club and two members of the administration staff at GCVI.

Several members of the St James Breakfast Club team have served in this rewarding project since its inception and are usually joined by University of Guelph nutrition program students on scheduled days of the week.

Volunteers are needed to join the Breakfast Club team for one morning each week either as a regular or substitute. Typically, we need two parishioners each day from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. to set up and clear up and connect with the students. More information is available by contacting:
