In celebration of National Cereal Day, General Mills, Kellogg Company, Post, and Quaker are coming together on Capitol Hill for a ready-to-eat cereal breakfast and cereal packing event supporting non-profit hunger relief organizations.
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 8, 2023 – In partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign, General Mills, Kellogg Company, Post, and Quaker are coming together to increase awareness of food insecurity and are making a donation that can help provide more than 300,000 meals for kids.* One in eight kids live with hunger in the United States. Access to critical meals like breakfast can help kids across the country have the opportunity to grow up healthy, happy, and strong.
Today, the country’s leading ready-to-eat cereal brands are coming together in our nation’s capital for a cereal breakfast and packing event, featuring remarks on the power of the cereal bowl from company leadership. Members of Congress and staff will have the opportunity to pack tote bags with ready-to-eat cereal provided by all four brands to be donated to For Love of Children, a Washington D.C.-based non-profit organization focused on out-of-classroom educational services.
“We’re motivated by our collective efforts and long-standing commitment to advocate for affordable, accessible nutrition for children across our nation with a celebration of cereal – a food we all know and love,” said Ricardo Fernandez, President, U.S. Morning Foods at General Mills.
“We’re incredibly proud of the meaningful impact we’ve made with No Kid Hungry to support such an important cause, and we look forward to continuing this effort with all our partners to help reduce childhood hunger,” said Doug VanDeVelde, General Manager, Ready-to-Eat Cereal at Kellogg Company.
“We’re here as a united force with brands representing the cereal category to ensure every child has access to a nutritious meal,” said Jill Bollettieri, Senior Vice President, General Counsel & External Relations at Post Consumer Brands.
