​Cereal Box Challenge

- Buses for bags of boxes -

The annual Cereal Box Challenge has concluded and participating schools are just waiting for the final results.

Pick up and deliveries will begin on Monday, November 25th with the first buses arriving at Bellewood PS at 9:00 a.m. and Talbot Trail PS at 10:00 a.m. to transport the collections of food to breakfast programs at other GECDSB schools.

For the last few weeks participating schools have been answering the challenge by collecting cereal. The total weight in grams will be tabulated and divided by the student population to determine the overall winner of the challenge.

This long running event has collected and distributed millions of grams of cereal to school breakfast programs and area service organizations to help everyone get their days off to a strong start.
