BBH Chase Park IS Hunger Chasers

The BBH IS Department at Chase Park would like to invite you to join us in the fight against hunger as we participate in the Healthy over Hungry Cereal Drive. Food insecurity is a real problem that affects 1 in 5 children here in the United States. There are 35,000 children in Jefferson County who struggle with this. With summer right around the corner, there will be many children who don’t have access to free breakfast and lunch at school so many will go hungry. But, the good news is that we can help! We have partnered with the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama and Feeding America. We are asking for donations of healthy cereal, cereal bars, oatmeal, grits, and breakfast shakes. By donating these items, we are helping others in our own community! If you prefer you can make a monetary donation on this website that will accept debit or credit cards. Cash donations can be given to Nancy Nixon or Jennifer Kimbrell. On behalf of the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama, Feeding America and Brookwood Baptist Health, thank you for being a part of the Healthy over Hungry Cereal Drive! Then the righteous will answer Him, saying “Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?” And the King will answer and say to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these, My brethren, you did it to Me.” Matt. 25:37, 40.

Tenet Health's Healthy Over Hunger Cereal Drive

About This Campaign

The Legacy of the Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive

In a hospital, nurses often see the problem first. And Pam Taurence is no exception. Day after day, Pam and her colleagues at Children’s Hospital of Michigan treated kids who were struggling with food insecurity and saw the devastating effects that it had on their health.

As the chair of the Professional Nurse Council (PNC) at Children’s Hospital, Pam challenged herself and fellow PNC members to address this problem not only for their patients but for all of the children living in food-insecure households in Detroit. The nurses knew that summer was particularly challenging because kids could no longer rely on their schools for meals. So in June of 2010, the Cereal Drive was born.

In its first year, more than 160,000 servings of cereal were donated to Gleaners Community Food Bank for area children. Since then, 15 other pediatric hospitals have joined in the fight against hunger and Tenet Healthcare has adopted this initiative company-wide to address the importance of eating a healthy, well-balanced breakfast every day.

In 2015, the newly named “Healthy Over Hungry” Cereal Drive collected a staggering 2.6 million servings of cereal and $75,000 for more than 70 of Feeding America’s local food banks and distribution partners.

Thanks to Pam’s perseverance, the program’s success has been overwhelming! Pam’s remarkable efforts were recognized in 2014 when she was named a Tenet Hero Hall of Fame inductee, one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a Tenet colleague for extraordinary service.

In 2016, the cereal drive is growing even more. Thank you to all who have and continue to make the “Healthy Over Hungry” Cereal Drive a success.
