Breakfast Club of Canada Breakfast Program started September 19th at Midale Central School. They have a variety of nutritious foods offered to the students each morning throughout the school year. Support from a variety of local businesses and individuals made this possible with their donations to the program.

Mayor Allan Hauglum added, "Shelley McKenzie is the one who runs this breakfast program, and every child that goes to school in Midale Central, can come in the morning for breakfast. And they change it around every day, they have something different. And from what I see, and I've been their quite a few times. They're getting 90 to 100 kids coming for breakfast every morning, and they have some volunteer kids who come in and make the breakfast for everybody in the school too." Mrs. McKenzie and her students kicked off the meal the first day and it has been a successful program running into November.

Mayor Hauglum said, "The town, our council had discussed it and we donated a thousand bucks towards the breakfast club, we feel its worthy cause for the community and for the kids. It brings kids in, they enjoy it, and they can have breakfast and sleep in a little longer at home. They don't have to get up and have breakfast at home, they can come to the school and have it."

Breakfast is an important meal to get the mind and body in motion early in the morning, "I think its the whole thing behind it."

Building into our future generation, by keeping children healthy to start a day of learning.
