Making A Difference With Champions For Kids and Post Bowls Of Hope Simple Service Project

~Posted by Patricia

I am so proud to be participating once again with Champions For Kids and the Post Bowls For Hope Simple Service Project this month.

This wonderful project is all about supplementing local food banks and other helping organizations with breakfast and lunch items for low-income children. During the summer months, 5 of 6 children who have access to local food programs during the other months of the year, lose that access during the summer. This means that millions of children go without breakfasts and lunches because their families may have difficulty providing these meals for them.

Post Cereal teamed up with Champions For Kids to help fight childhood hunger, and to help provide the breakfasts that children need to be and stay healthy. Did you know that 5.6 million Americans seek out food from food banks or other resources? I didn't know this until I read about these important facts while participating in this project.

My Post brand cereal to donate #PostCFK

I went shopping at my local Walmart for Post Cereals to donate. The Post Bowls of Hope project is encouraging everyone to host a food drive in whatever way is possible to collect food for donation. I am having a small food drive with my family, and we will donate our items to my local food bank.

I had intended to invite my family over for dinner for my food drive, but a serious medical emergency in my family prevented that from happening. Instead, I asked them to drop off their donations when they could. I was happy that we were able to collect breakfast items that are so badly needed, especially cereal.

I took my 5 year-old grandson with me to make my donation. I feel it's very important for him to understand that we need to help others when we can. He does understand what "donate" means, and he loves helping me out. My grandson thought it was very important that other kids have their cereal to eat in the mornings just like he does. This guy loves his cereal!

I'm making my donation to the Kingston Food Bank. We have donated here before and I just love it's director and wonderful volunteers that help so many others in the community. #PostCFK

I am so happy to be working with Champions for Kids and Post Cereals to help children in need.
