Reach hungry kids with the much-loved food of cereal!
Stay tuned to this page for a list of locations where you can drop off your donation to curb child hunger.
The staff at DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan sees the effects of child hunger first-hand. In 2010, the DMC's Professional Nurse Council took action, organizing a massive cereal collection for kids. The drive provided more than 160,000 meals for children who face hunger.
Year after year, the drive has grown. Last summer, nearly 680,000 servings of cereal were collected by southeast Michigan DMC locations. The drive has also grown to national scale. A total of 1.5 million cereal servings were collected in 2013 by Children's Hospitals across the country who were inspired by our local effort.
Gleaners thanks the Professional Nurse Council, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Clear Channel radio and everyone involved in making the cereal drive a mammoth success for hungry kids. We look forward to a great 2014!
