Champions for Kids Post Bowls of Hope Simple Service Project.

~by Patricia

I am proud to be participating in the June Post Bowls of Hope Simple Service Project with Champions for Kids. During the summer months, millions of low-income children go without school breakfasts and lunches, and their families may have difficulty providing these meals.

The goal of this project is to supplement local food banks with breakfast and lunch items that families with children can use and receive. Post Cereal has partnered with Champions for Kids for this very important need.

I went shopping at my local Walmart to buy Post Cereals to donate to my local food bank. I will be having a family food drive and asking them to bring food donations when they come over for dinner. Giving to others in our community is very important, and teaches the younger children in our family to help others.

Post makes many different kinds of cereals that are part of a healthy breakfast. I thought this service project was a great idea, and the thought of providing children with a good breakfast to start their day really motivated me to participate.

I am hoping to collect donations like peanut butter and other things that kids like and are easy to make. Parents must often stretch already limited food budgets during the summer months when school is closed and their children cannot eat breakfast or lunch at school.

Fresh fruits are always welcomed at the food bank, and are great for a healthy snack. Bananas are also good to put on a child's cereal to increase it's nutritional value. Post makes lots of cereals that are both delicious and good for you.

Milk and other dairy products are very important items at the food bank. I love donating yogurt because it's something most kids like eating.

I will be donating to the Kingston Food Bank. They are in my community and it's director and volunteers tirelessly work to help out local families. I can't wait to make my donation here and help other families with children who need it.

I am very happy to be working again with Champions for Kids, and love being a part of helping others.
Thanks to Post Cereals for this project.
