KS95 Hunger Challenge for Walk to End Hunger

November 23, 2015 By: Marie Pauley Category: Events Tags: Walk to End Hunger, Thanksgiving, end hunger

Post and KS95 LogosWalk to End Hunger and Post Consumer Brands have teamed up to challenge Ryan and Fish, hosts of the KS95 morning show, to step into the shoes of someone who is food insecure in Minnesota.

Starting this morning at 7 a.m., Ryan and Fish will eat on an $8 food budget for 50 hours. This is based on the national average budget that many struggling individuals and families have for food, once they’ve paid rent and other essential bills.

If Ryan and Fish complete the Hunger Challenge, Post Consumer Brands will donate 90,000 bowls of cereal to Second Harvest Heartland.

“Our company has had long-standing relationships with Second Harvest Heartland and food banks around the country where we have facilities. We believe that families everywhere should be able to enjoy a delicious bowl of cereal for breakfast. Unfortunately, too many families go hungry every day. We hope to make things a little bit better by donating 90,000+ servings of our Mom's Best brand cereal to the Walk to End Hunger, which will be distributed locally by Second Harvest Heartland.”  - Linda Fischer, Director Corporate Communications, Post Consumer Brands
