Placentia-Linda Hospital to Host Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive from June 1-8Oct 1, 2019
Because Hunger Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation
Placentia-Linda Hospital is leading a community effort to provide area children and adults struggling with hunger with a healthy breakfast during the summer through its Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive benefitting Second Harvest Food Bank Orange County, a member of the Feeding America network. The drive kicks off Friday, June 1 and runs through Friday, June 8.
“At Placentia-Linda we understand the health issues children face from hunger and poor nutrition,” said Christina Oh, chief executive officer of Placentia-Linda Hospital. “We recognize the importance of beginning each day with a nutritious breakfast and, through this drive, we hope to help the many in our community struggling with food insecurity. We invite you to help kids be Healthy Over Hungry® this summer.”
“We appreciate Placentia-Linda Hospital for hosting the Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive and are grateful for its commitment to building a healthy community,” said Nicole Suydam, CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank Orange County. “Summer is a particularly difficult time for our food bank because many children in need can no longer rely on their school meals for a nutritious breakfast, so their families often turn to us for help.
Donations of healthy cereal to the Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive will be collected from June 1 through June 8 at Placentia-Linda Hospital or to provide a financial donation for perishable breakfast items, please visit This Link for PC or This Link for iphone/ipad. All financial donations made during our campaign will be matched by Placentia-Linda’s parent company, Tenet Healthcare, up to $100,000.
