Post Bowls of Hope {Champions for Kids} #PostCFK

post bowls of hope

Can you imagine not having enough to eat or wondering where your next meal will come from or how to feed your children?  Many families struggle with this everyday.  It’s heartbreaking, buuuut WE CAN HELP!!  I was recently asked to participate in the Champions for Kids' featured project for this month by hosting a Post Bowls of Hope Food Drive. Champions for Kids is working to mobilize MILLIONS of people by providing training and resources to help improve the lives of children in communities across America and beyond. Their goal is to mobilize 20 million people by 2020. Sounds awesome, right??!!

The first thing I did was check out the Champions of Kids website to learn
a little more about Champions of Kids and Post Bowls of Hope.


On their website this is the information I found about the Post Bowls of Hope project:
“How it works: Gather your family, friends, and co-workers to fight childhood hunger in the summer by hosting a Post Bowls of Hope food drive!  Ask each person to bring nutritious food items like Post cereals to donate to a local food pantry in your community.”

Then I went to our local food bank’s website & found out what they needed!
(They need A LOT!)  Here is their list.  {Cereal was on the list, too!  Perfect! Smile}


We couldn’t wait to get started on our simple service project.
Our family decided to host a breakfast at our house & invite some of our friends over. 
We would have them all bring healthy food items for our local food bank. 

Buuut before we could do that I needed to stop by Walmart 
to pick up a few things for our little get-together.

Here’s a few pictures from the breakfast at our house!  We played a few breakfast inspired games like ”How many Honey-Combs are in the jar?”, and we even had a donut eating contest.  We also ate LOTS of Post cereal!  Yum!  We had fruit & donuts, too. 
We gave fruit scented bubbles to all the kids for party favors.
{Oh…just in case you were wondering…there were 235 Honey-Combs in the jar! Winking smile}

Look at the food we collected for our local food bank. Smile

After the our friends went home my kiddos & I
headed to our local food bank to drop off our donation. 
This is the first time we had actually visited our local food bank. 
We’ve donated to food drives at school & for Scouts,
but we had never been to where the food actually goes & get distributed.


It made us feel so good to help out a little! Smile


Why don’t YOU join us in fighting childhood hunger?

Post has the Buy 2 Give 1 campaign going on right now.
Buy 2 boxes of Post cereal for your family
& then buy 1 to give away to a
local food bank, church or charity. 

Every little bit helps!
Let’s get moving!

  1. Fantastic! Champions For Kids is such a wonderful program and I love that the kids get involved too!

  2. I think its fantastic that you made a fun event of giving with kids! Lessons that last a lifetime!

  3. This is so great, and I'm so glad that you decided to publish a blog post about it. I'm going to look into how my children's ministry classes can jump in and participate in Post Bowls of Hope. I think it would be a great way to teach my students about how important it is to give back to the community and to give to those that are in need.

  4. What an amazing way to help children in need. I love your breakfast party idea!

  5. Way 2 go on making it such a fun event for the kids. Pretty awesome!!

  6. This sounds like a fun way to teach children about giving without making it a "chore". I love the breakfast party ideas!!
