San Ramon Regional Medical Center Makes Donation to Local Food BankJun 17, 2022
San Ramon, Calif. – San Ramon Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce it has donated nearly 300 servings of cereal and more than $225 to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, during its Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive on June 6-13, 2022.
The donations collected will help provide local children and adults struggling with hunger with a healthy breakfast during the summer. Good nutrition is essential to good health, and summer is a particularly tough time for many food-insecure families because children can no longer rely on schools for nutritious meals, putting an added burden on these families.
“We care about the health of everyone in our community. Good nutrition is fundamental to good health,” said Ann Lucena, CEO of San Ramon Regional Medical Center. “The past two years have been especially challenging for households struggling with food insecurity. Many families have had to rely on food banks and other programs to have access to healthy meals. We recognize the importance of beginning each day with a nutritious breakfast and, through this drive, hope to do our part to help our community.”
The monetary donations collected will be used to buy perishable items such as milk, fruit/vegetables, and lean protein that can complement whole grains and help create a complete healthy breakfast.
San Ramon Regional Medical Center is grateful for the support of its staff members and the community in this effort.
