THV11 Summer Cereal Drive celebrates our 16th YEAR!
Our 2016 goal – 300,000 boxes!
For the last 15 years, YOU, THV11, and the Arkansas Foodbank - in partnership with local businesses, groups, and schools - have provided over 2.1 million boxes of cereal to Arkansas kids and their families.
In 2015, you helped donate a record 286,000 boxes of cereal, helping out children throughout central and southeast Arkansas all the way until December!

What is the Cereal Drive?
The THV11 Summer Cereal Drive provides hungry families in Arkansas with non-perishable breakfast items that are both nutritious and kid-friendly. Your donations help provide healthy breakfast options for children and families in central Arkansas who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day - breakfast.
In addition to individuals donating boxes, businesses can register for a friendly competition!
