Boca Helping Hands and FAU to Host a Tackle Hunger Cereal Drive During Hunger Action Month

Boca Raton, FL (August 14, 2022) – Boca Helping Hands (BHH), in collaboration with Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Athletics and Cereal4All, for the third year in a row, will commemorate September's Hunger Action Month by hosting a Tackle Hunger Cereal Drive during the FAU vs. Ohio football game. The game will take place on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m. at the FAU Stadium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL 33431. Those who donate one or more cereal boxes (family sized) will get a free ticket to the game. Unopened cereal boxes can be dropped at the stadium (Gate 1) on game day.
"This is a great way to see your favorite football team play while helping to fight hunger in our community," said Greg Hazle, Executive Director of Boca Helping Hands. "Cereal is one of the least donated items to food banks across the country, which means underserved kids and families do not always get to start their day with a nutritious breakfast."
Nonprofit Cereal4All was started by twin brothers Jett and Luke Justin of Boca Raton, now 15 years old. After volunteering at Boca Helping Hands with their parents, Jett and Luke organized their first cereal drive for BHH at their school in 2016 when they were just eight years old. The boys have since expanded the program to 15 schools in Palm Beach County as well as schools in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Nevada, New York, and Washington to benefit their own local food banks.
"The box of cereal you donate will fill somebody's empty bowl," Luke Justin said. "Their day will get off to a better start because of you."
