At the John Tavares Foundation, we are committed to inspiring the next generation to build a better world for themselves and the generations that follow. We believe every child should have an equal opportunity to realize their full potential and shape their own future.
Our mission is to help kids everywhere understand the importance of proper nutrition and embrace healthy lifestyle options that fuel both their passions and potential. By equipping them with essential resources we can support their physical, cognitive and emotional well-being.
Join our movement, as we empower families to strengthen their connection to the community by turning moments into lifelong memories.

What We Do
Empowering both children and parents to lead a more fulfilling life, we will unite, inspire and lead change in communities far and wide as the next generation is the difference between the world today and what it will become.
When you uncover your passion nothing can stand in your way. To make that happen, we use our collective knowledge to inspire small changes towards a healthier and happier you.
We all want to see this younger generation realize their potential physically, emotionally and cognitively yet according to BullyingCanada, at least one third* of Canadian youth report being recently bullied,
making it a difficult for these kids to believe in themselves and pursue a brighter future without proper support.
Given the realities of our busy, modern lifestyles, enabling kids to be at their best can be challenging.
For many youth today that means spending less time in front of a screen and leaving more time for play and unorganized physical activity with friends, neighbours and family.
While being more active means we also need the right nutritional sources for their developing bodies and minds as eating healthy remains a challenge with Canada ranking 37th out of 41** countries when it comes to providing healthy food for kids.
Food literacy can be a fun and essential way for families to better realize the importance of developing eating habits and attitudes that they carry with them for the rest of their lives.
