Members of the Brantford Regional Real Estate Association Inc. (BRREA) proudly presented Brant Food For Thought with a cheque in the amount of $5,440 in association with the Ontario Realtors Care Foundation.  The BRREA Community Awareness Committee selected our organization to receive this grant.  Committee member, Serryn Stephenson, when asked why the committee chose Brant Food For Thought, responded that “they wanted to support children in the community and an organization that was food-related.”  Stephenson mentioned that her children are in the teaching profession and they witness the benefit of good nutrition and education together.

BRREA President, Rose Sicoli, “loves that the programs supported by Brant Food For Thought are not poverty driven, but that every child can participate regardless of their socioeconomic background.”

“There are so many worthy causes in our community,” says Gisèle Budgell, Program Director.  “We are honoured that you selected to support ours.”

Thank you to the BRREA Community Awareness Committee for contributing to a child’s ability to learn by helping Brant Food For Thought support universal breakfast and healthy snack programs in local schools.  Thank you for caring!
