We are gearing up for the 2015 THV11 Summer Cereal Drive!
We had a record shattering year in 2014 collecting over 218,000 boxes of cereal that were distributed throughout our 33 county service area. The overwhelming response to the 2014 drive allowed the Arkansas Foodbank to provide healthy kid-friendly breakfast throughout the entire year. Thank You!
The 2015 goal is to collect 225,000 boxes. Find out if we made the goal by watching our Wrap Up/Awards Breakfast on July 9th during THV11's morning show!
We couldn't do it alone. THV11 and the Arkansas Foodbank want to thank all of the businesses, organizations, church groups and schools who participated in the 2015 THV Summer Cereal Drive.
About the Summer Cereal Drive:
THV11's "This Morning" and the Arkansas Foodbank have been teaming up every summer since 2000 to help those in the Foodbank's 33-county service area have food to eat for breakfast. The cereal drive is a friendly competition to see which business, organization and community can donate the most cereal during a four-week period.
Since it started in 2000, more than one million boxes of cereal and other breakfast items have been collected and distributed to food pantries and feeding sites.
