Malakiah Anderson is helping kids go back to school with a healthy start!

While looking for ways to make a difference in his community, Malakiah discovered Cereal4all, a youth-run nonprofit that works with students and schools to ensure that food banks can offer breakfast to disadvantaged children and families. He held his own food drive over the summer and the cereal he collected arrived just in time for the start of the school year. Thank you Malakiah!
