Tenet’s annual Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive® collects donations of cereal to help support families struggling with hunger. The Cereal Drive was launched in 2010 by a nurse at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, a Tenet hospital which is part of the Detroit Medical Center, and the DMC Professional Nurse Council. The purpose of the drive was to donate much needed food for Detroit families and to promote the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, especially for children in the summer months. The program was so successful that it was later expanded nationally across the Tenet network.
Since 2014, this national program has helped collect more than 19 million servings of cereal and raised almost $1.2 million to benefit thousands of children across the United States.
Your donation to Healthy Over Hungry will support the Pearl St. Cupboard & Café Feeding the Hungry program. Pearl Street serves thousands of your neighbors each month and we rely on our dedicated volunteers and loyal supporters to serve the community. Since opening our doors in 2012, the Pearl Street Cupboard & Café at Park has become one of the largest food pantries in Massachusetts, serving thousands of local residents who struggle to make ends meet.
