Food Donor Spotlight

Donor SpotlightThey say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet many families in Ohio don’t have access to the foods they need to start the day off right. Our partner, Ralston Foods is helping to make sure they do.

Ralston produces cereal for a variety of major retail partners and also donates cereal to the Foodbank. In the past year, they provided 760,856 breakfasts to those in need. “Cereal is in high demand among our clients, but it is not frequently donated. Ralston helps us fill this critical gap,” says Director of Food Resource Development, Matt Calton. Donated cereal helps keep children’s bellies full and energy levels high for a great start to their day.
