13th Annual Children's Hospital Cereal Drive June 3 - June 10, 2022


Year after year, the cereal drive has grown, collecting over 11.5 million cereal servings in 12 years, reaching thousands of children in our community! The 13th Annual Cereal Drive will kick off June 3 and runs through June 10. The staff at Children’s Hospital of Michigan see firsthand the impact food insecurity has on children’s health and continue to work with Gleaners Community Food Bank to keep the children and families in our community healthy.

We are BACK IN PERSON this year, filling trucks with cereal, in addition to collection donations through our Virtual Cereal Drive. All donations, including virtual, will go to Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan to support the community wherever the need is greatest this year.
