Featured Charity: Harbourside Rotary School Breakfast Program

A Full Belly for Hungry Kids

At this time of year, when we are starting to think about the holiday dinners we’ll soon enjoy (within our bubbles, of course), it important to remember that not everybody has access to the food they need to stay healthy and strong. Sadly, more than three thousand local school kids arrive hungry at our schools in Victoria every morning – a number that is only increasing during these difficult times.

In an effort to help, Victoria-Harbourside Rotary has been helping provide healthy breakfasts to students in Victoria every single morning. The benefits a full belly brings are many – from an improved ability to focus and learn, to better mood, less anxiety and a sense of belonging. This program, which is our Feature Charity of the Month, helps with that.

Supported in part by Cobs Bread and through donations gathered via the Rotary Club, these healthy breakfasts offer a great kickstart to hungry students who might otherwise go without.

Proceeds from the sale of growler fills and of our exclusive curated six-packs of cans found at our Growler Station (at the brewery) will be given to this awesome and important program.
