Breakfast Can Change The World
The Breakfast With Santa Foundation is a non-profit charity founded by Maria Esteves over 25 years ago. Operated by a dedicated group of volunteers, 100% of donations go directly to the cause, impacting the lives of thousands of children each year. While the foundation is very privileged to have some excellent partnerships, each year there is always more need and less money.

Christmas Breakfast Programs
The pillar of the foundation is our Christmas Breakfast Events, which provide underprivileged families in the Peel Region with a meaningful and dignified holiday experience. Complete with a buffet breakfast, puppet show, fairytale characters and presents from Santa himself, Breakfast with Santa is the highlight of the holiday season for 1,500 families. This year we hope to serve over 2,000. And with your help we will.
Summer Breakfast Program
Maria's passion to make a difference in children's lives isn't limited to Christmas. It found its way into local schools over 10 years ago when she realized that many kids who rely on their school's breakfast programs are left hungry during the summer months. That's why she and the late Maggie Steacy created the Summer Breakfast Program. Feeding 150 kids in 4 schools each year is a big achievement. But we know we can do even more with your kind donations.
