Get into the FAU football game this weekend for free with a box of cereal

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Brothers Luke and Jett Justin took notice when they volunteered at the Boca Helping hand (BHH) pantry that an item was not often given away.

“There was always a shortage of cereal to put in the pantry bags. And we decided we wanted to do something about it. So we started collecting cereal at our primary school, Calusa, and since then we expanded it to 16 schools,” said Luke Justin, who is now a freshman at American Heritage Palm Beach.

“We wanted to make sure kids could start their day with breakfast,” added Jett Justin.

They formed Cereal4All and have so far collected 16,000 boxes of cereal, which equals 158,000 bowls.

“They came here when they were 8 years old and learned the lesson that sometimes it takes many of us our whole lives to learn that they can make a difference in people’s lives. They organize the cereal drive , so they’re not just growing grains for as a tangible way to contribute, but they inspire us and others to make a difference in people’s lives,” said BHH Managing Director Gregory Hazel.

This weekend, their mission continues at the FAU Owls football game.

“We play Southeast Louisiana at 6 p.m. Saturday night at our stadium, we are expecting a large crowd and anyone who brings a box of cereal, as part of cereal for all for BHH, will have free admission to the game. “Brian said. White, vice president and director of sports at the FAU.

Putting a small band-aid on a seemingly bigger problem.

“It is estimated that approximately 200,000 members of our community here in Palm Beach County have food insecurity issues. That means they may not be hungry today, but they don’t know ‘where their next meal will come from. The painful part for me is that almost 60,000 of that number are children. Alright, and that’s, in my opinion, just a dirty little secret that we have in our county,” Hazel said.
