2017 Summer Cereal Drive Total
2017 proved to be another amazing drive bringing in 344,639 boxes of cereal!

THV11 and the Arkansas Foodbank are celebrating the 18th year of the Summer Cereal Drive!

The Summer Cereal Drive provides non-perishable breakfast items that are both nutritious and kid-friendly for children and families in Central Arkansas who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day – breakfast.


There are two ways to participate in Summer Cereal Drive. You can come to our community sites and drop off your donations or you can create a team! Get your friends, family or coworkers together and form a team to compete in our drive. You can collect cereal, breakfast items and money during the month of June and then bring it on the designated drop off day to see which team brings in the most for each division!
