KENS 5 and Methodist Children’s Hospital are collecting cereal boxes and accepting monetary donations.
Before his passing, Rowan Windham hoped to eliminate childhood hunger by collecting boxes upon boxes of cereal from his hospital room. In his honor, Methodist Children’s Hospital champions a cereal drive every year to help reach Rowan’s goal.
Through May 25, 2023, you can help reach our goal of collecting 222,000 servings of cereal. Your donation benefits the San Antonio Food Bank. Every $1 donated equals seven servings of cereal.
A staggering 1 in 4 children in our community experiences food insecurity.

About Rowan Windham
At age 4, Rowan was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. He spent more than 1,500 days in the hospital and underwent 100 surgeries.
He passed away in December 2016 at age 10 of complications from two bone marrow transplants.
Despite his battle with the disorder, Rowan affected the lives of countless people with his unwavering faith, courage, strength and love.
When Rowan learned of childhood hunger and the cereal drive at Methodist Children’s Hospital, he began asking the public to donate.
Rowan’s involvement and passion for the cereal drive made him synonymous with the event. The cereal drive continues today in his honor.
