I am going to volunteer with the Breakfast Club of Canada.  This organizations mission is to provide children with the nutrients the need to complete a good day at school. They do this by providing children with breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day.

The article, written by June Thompson, features a local group called the Morning Walkers have been together for 20 years on Friday.
