BECAUSE NOW MORE THAN EVER KIDS NEED BREAKFAST
For the past 12 years the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Professional Nurse Council at the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) has partnered with Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan to lead a community effort to provide children with a consistent daily meal over summer recess.
Now more than ever, kids in Southeast Michigan need access to healthy breakfast options throughout the summer. Over the last 12 years, together, we have raised over 11.5 million servings of cereal. This year, we are BACK IN PERSON! We’ll be filling trucks with cereal AND taking donations through our Virtual Cereal Drive to help children eat a healthy breakfast this summer. At the Children’s Hospital of Michigan we see firsthand the impact food insecurity has on children’s health. The hospital does not just treat sick or injured children; we work to keep the children and families in our community healthy, and your support is appreciated now more than ever.
The 13th Annual Cereal Drive will kick off June 3 and runs through June 10. All donations will go to Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan to support the community wherever the need is greatest this year.
