Local hospitals collect 5,000 servings of cereal for summer breakfast drive 

Twin Cities cereal drive.

–Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and Twin Cities Community Hospital recently announced that both hospitals together donated 5,000 servings of cereal and nearly $500 to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County, a member of the Feeding America network, during their Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive, which ran from June 7-14, 2019.

The donations collected will help provide local children and adults struggling with hunger with a healthy breakfast during the summer. Good nutrition is essential to good health, and summer is a particularly tough time for many food-insecure families because children can no longer rely on schools for nutritious meals, putting an added burden on these families.
