Brookwood Baptist Health Hospitals to Host Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive June 7-14

Jun 3, 2021

Because Hunger Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation


BIRMINGHAM, AL – Brookwood Baptist Health is leading a community effort to provide Central Alabama children and adults struggling with hunger with a healthy breakfast during the summer months through its annual Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive. The drive kicks off Monday, June 7 and runs through Monday, June 14. Donations will benefit the following:

  • Community Food Bank of Central Alabama – Brookwood Princeton, Shelby and Walker Baptist Medical Centers
  • Champion Church of Talladega – Citizens Baptist Medical Center

“This past year has been particularly devastating for families struggling with hunger, as the COVID-19 pandemic compounded extreme food shortages in many communities,” stated Tim Puthoff, CEO, Brookwood Baptist Health. “We recognize the importance of beginning each day with a nutritious breakfast and, through this drive, hope to help many across Central Alabama struggling with food insecurity. We invite you to join us in our efforts to help our communities be ‘Healthy Over Hungry’ this summer.”

According to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama, the parents or guardians of nearly 73,000 children in Central Alabama say their children sometimes skip meals, do not eat for a whole day or go hungry because there is not enough money to buy food for the household. The good news is that together, we can make a difference.
