Tenet Announces Results for the 2019 Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive
In 2019, we collected 4.5 million servings of cereal to benefit more than 100 local food banks and nonprofits across the country. The Cereal Drive works to help those struggling with hunger and to promote the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, especially for children who lose access to school-based nutrition programs during the summer months.

The Cereal Drive was launched in Detroit in 2010 by Pam Taurence, a nurse at Detroit Medical Center’s Children’s Hospital of Michigan, and the DMC Professional Nurse Council. Tenet expanded the drive nationally in 2014 after Detroit Medical Center became part of the Tenet system. Since 2014, more than 19 million servings of cereal and approximately $1,165,000 have been donated to benefit thousands of children and others struggling with the effects of hunger.
We are so proud of our teams across the Tenet enterprise for their efforts to fight hunger in our communities and to promote the importance of eating a healthy breakfast.
Thank you for joining us to make a difference in the lives of others!
