Kellogg Company is teaming up with Strack & Van Til and the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana to address summer hunger among children in the Region. Starting June 2nd, Kellogg’s will donate 1 meal for every box of participating cereal purchased at any Strack & Van Til store. At the end of the campaign, a donation will be made to the Food Bank.
“During the summer months, when school is out of session, the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana steps in with programming to fill the summer meal gap that children face”, said Victor A. Garcia, Food Bank of Northwest Indiana President & CEO. “We hope to provide nutritious food to as many children as possible through our Backpack, Pantry Pack, and Mobile Market programs”, said Garcia.
“At Kellogg, we strive each and every day to ensure that people are not just fed, but fulfilled,” said Michael Browne, Vice President, Wholesale Channel, Kellogg Company. “We know that summertime can be challenging for many when kids aren’t in school, and so we’re pleased to partner with Strack & Van Til to support the Food Bank and ensure that more families are getting access to needed meals.”
At the end of the school year, Northwest Indiana children have barriers to access the same consistency of meals that the school year provides. Summer meal programs provided by the Food Bank ensure that children residing in households with limited incomes continue to receive nutritious meals during the break.
“Childhood nutrition is important year-round” said Jeff Strack, President and CEO of Strack & Van Til. “This summer, Strack & Van Til is proud to partner with the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana and Kellogg’s to help families provide proper nutritional meals for their children while they are on break.”
“Summer Nutrition Programs can make a huge difference for the thousands of children in Northwest Indiana whose families struggle to afford enough nutritious food”, said Garcia. The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana is partnering with Strack & Van Til and Kellogg’s so that children in our community have access to the food they need to thrive.
