List of drop-off sites for the second annual Cereal Drive

The second Annual Allegan County Food Pantry Collaborative Cereal Drive will be collecting cereal boxes throughout the month of April.

The cereal is distributed to children on free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs at school.

During summer vacation. when school is not in session, these children often go hungry. The goal is to collect 40,000 boxes in order to provide one box, per child, per week throughout the summer.

The collaborative offers ideas on how individuals can be creative to help meet the goal, including:

• Let everyone in the office know to bring a box for each of their April meetings.

• Go to the game on any Friday and encourage fans to bring their favorite cereal.

• Have friends or family over for dinner and ask them each bring to a box.

For those who prefer to have the collaborative do the shopping, drop a check to the Allegan County Community Foundation, 524 Marshall St., Allegan MI 49010 and memo: CEREAL.
