Before his passing, Rowan Windham hoped to eliminate childhood hunger by collecting boxes upon boxes of cereal from his hospital room. In his honor, Methodist Children’s Hospital champions a cereal drive every year to help reach Rowan’s goal. Rowan’s story touched the hearts of General Mills executives, inspiring a $50,000 donation for the second year in a row.
From May 24- 30, 2021, you can help us reach our goal of collecting $100,000 for the San Antonio Food Bank. Every $1 donated equals seven servings of cereal.
Prior to the pandemic, a staggering 1 in 4 children in our community were experiencing food insecurity. The need has more than doubled, with the San Antonio Food Bank serving nearly 120,000 members of our community each week.
Thank you for helping us end childhood hunger in Bexar County!
