“In Palm Beach County, we understand the health issues children face from hunger and poor nutrition,” said Maggie Gill, chief executive officer for the Tenet Palm Beach Market, “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.”
 
Whole-grain cereal, when part of a healthy, balanced breakfast including dairy, fruit and lean protein, is a popular food item that experts say can easily address the hunger gap during the summer months when children are not in school. 
 
“Too often we see patients in our hospitals and outpatient centers, particularly children, who are struggling with the effects of hunger,” said Jeffrey M. Welch, chief executive officer for the Tenet Miami-Dade market.  “Summer is an especially hard time for food-insecure children because they can no longer rely on their schools for meals.  We know good health starts with good nutrition, which is why we are proud to host our annual Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive.”
 
Donations of healthy cereal to the Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive will be collected from June 7 through June 14 at each hospital or to provide a financial donation for perishable breakfast items, please visit http://www.findfoodbank.org/donate-today/tenet/
