When summer break begins, access to a free or reduced breakfast and lunch ends. A staggering 1 in 4 children in our community experience food insecurity, which means than 200,000 students in Bexar County are at risk of going hungry during the summer break. Before his passing, Rowan Windham hoped to eliminate this problem. In his honor, Methodist Healthcare champions a cereal drive every June to help with trying to reach Rowan's goal of ending childhood hunger.

Breakfast of Champions, Student Nomination

Methodist Children’s Hospital is accepting nominations for the next class of student Champions.

In honor of the late Rowan Windham, a patient and giving child who put the good of others before himself, Methodist Children’s Hospital is honoring the students in our community who exemplify Rowan’s generous qualities. These Champions will be celebrated and honored at the 2nd Annual Breakfast of Champions on Friday, June 7, 2019.
