By the time Tenet Healthcare Corp. finished it’s 10th annual Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive last month, it had collected 4.5 million bowls of the breakfast food.
The charitable drive aims to provide breakfast for low-income families, emphasizing children who lose access to school-based nutrition programs during their summer break.
The drive gathered donations at its 560 sites, amassing boxes of cereal to distribute to 100 local food banks and pantries.
Four-year-old Marc Zeilmann kicked off the drive at Baptist Health System in San Antonio by getting behind the wheel of a mini tractor-trailer. The son of a Baptist Health nurse, he drove around the facility to collect donations.
