Nature’s Food Patch Provides Cereal for Hungry Children
Your local natural foods grocer, Nature’s Food Patch Market & Café, has teamed up with Feeding Tampa Bay and 10News WTSP to collect healthy breakfast items for Cereal for Summer.
Children go hungry over the summer without the programs that feed them during the school year. The Patch is collecting breakfast items such as cereal bars, cereal, oatmeal and shelf-stable milk through May 5th.
The Patch also reached out to some of their local vendors. Seitenbacher donated six pallets of cereal to this program, which was brought to the 10News studio and taped live. See the story here: bit.ly/CerealForSummerNFP. NFP Store Director Rebekah Santiago said, “Feeding kids is something dear to my heart. I knew we could make a big impact and help out [kids] in our own backyard.”
Customers can purchase any shelf-stable breakfast item at Nature’s Food Patch and drop it in the donation box at checkout. The store has partnered with Cascadian Farms for a “buy one, donate one” sale on all of their organic cereals (while supplies last).
