"More than 42 million people in the United States face hunger, including 13 million children," said Nancy Curby, senior vice president of Corporate Partnerships & Operations at Feeding America®. "Hunger is an issue that impacts every single county in our country and we are grateful for Tenet's support of our food bank network through its Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive."The Cereal Drive was launched in Detroit in 2010 by Pam Taurence, a nurse at Detroit Medical Center's Children's Hospital of Michigan. Ms. Taurence and her colleagues realized that many children were coming to the hospital hungry during the summer months when they were not attending school. Tenet Healthcare expanded the drive nationally in 2014 after Detroit Medical Center became part of the Tenet system. In recognition of her efforts, Ms. Taurence was inducted into the Tenet Heroes Hall of Fame in April of 2014.
