Carey Price to launch breakfast club programs in Anahim Lake

Montreal Canadiens net minder Carey Price will launch two new breakfast club programs in his home town next week.

Montreal Canadiens netminder and Anahim Lake’s own Carey Price will be in his hometown on Tuesday, Aug. 19, to launch two new breakfast club programs at local schools.

Price, who is the First Nations ambassador for the Breakfast Club of Canada, will launch the programs with a grand opening event in Anahim Lake for the students of Anahim Lake Elementary-Junior Secondary School and Ulkatcho First Nations School.

“Proud of my roots, I have long wanted to give back to my community in a concrete and lasting manner,” Price said. “Thanks to the expertise and flexibility of the Breakfast Club, we will open two new clubs that fulfill the needs of the youth of my region.

“In addition, the positive impact is of short- and long-term because we are also feeding dreams and the ability to dream is the beginning of success.”

The two new breakfast programs will be accompanied by the donation of kitchen equipment.

Daniel Germain, the president and founder of the Breakfast Club of Canada, and representatives from the Ulkatcho First Nation Band, Air Canada and Anahim Lake Elementary-Junior Secondary and Ulkatcho First Nations School, will accompany Price during the event, which is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

At 1:30 p.m. there will be a photo opportunity and autograph session with Price.

“As a national ambassador of the club, Carey has proven to be a wonderful advocate for today’s youth,” Germain said.

“We are very excited to be here in his hometown of Anahim Lake launching these two school breakfast programs.”

The Breakfast Club of Canada said one in five students in B.C. goes to school hungry and one in seven children in Canada live in a home where they are at risk of going hungry.

The Breakfast Club of Canada supports 106 school breakfast programs in B.C. and in 2013, Breakfast Club of Canada served healthy breakfasts to nearly 130,000 students in schools across the country.
