THV11, KSSN 96, 100.3 The Edge, 105.1 The Wolf, Hot 94.9 and the Arkansas Foodbank are excited to present the 2021 Summer Cereal Drive! As one of Arkansas’ largest and best-known hunger relief initiatives, and we are so excited to celebrate two plus decades of growth and unprecedented success while challenging teams and individuals to make this the most successful SCD to date. The 21st Annual THV11 Summer Cereal Drive continues the Arkansas tradition with everyone’s safety and health in mind.
In response to the wake of COVID-19, the THV11 Summer Cereal Drive is more important now than it’s ever been. The pandemic continues to affect us all, but our state’s most vulnerable populations face the greatest challenges. YOU can help provide dignity, hope and a brighter future for our neighbors by joining in the fight against hunger this summer.
ABOUT THE EVENT
Since 2000, teams across central and south Arkansas have competed to provide the most cereal to our neighbors facing hardships — particularly children — during summer months. While many of us look forward to summer, 1 in 4 children in our state face increased levels of food insecurity as schools close classrooms and kitchens during summer break.
WHO CAN DONATE
Anyone! Individuals and schools can donate boxes and make online contributions. Plus, businesses and organizations can register as a team to participate in the drive for a little friendly competition!
WHERE TO DONATE
