MOM Brands Hosts Tenth Annual Cereal Day for United Way

It’s that time of year again – time for the MOM Brands®
annual Cereal Day for United Way. On Thursday, Nov. 15, the
company will sell bags of its family favorite Malt-O-Meal®
varieties for just $1; all proceeds from the sale will benefit Greater
Twin Cities United Way.

The sale, which begins at 7:30 a.m. in the Crystal Court at IDS Center,
will run until noon, or until the cereal sells out. The company’s goal
is to sell 25,000 bags of cereal, and for every bag purchased, MOM
Brands will also donate another dollar, for a maximum donation of

“We value our long-standing relationship with Malt-O-Meal and the
support we receive from the MOM Brands annual cereal sale,” said United
Way senior vice president of Workplace Markets Andy Goldman-Gray. “It’s
a thrill to know that this event continues to generate such excitement.
MOM Brands clearly knows how to engage their employees, their customers
and our community, in order to make the Twin Cities region a healthier
place to live.”

This year marks the 10th annual MOM Brands cereal sale in Minneapolis,
which has raised nearly $500,000 to date for United Way. Based on the
success of its annual cereal sales in Minneapolis, the company has
partnered with local United Way affiliates across the country to give
back in communities where MOM Brands production facilities are located.
The company held a June cereal sale in St. Ansgar, IA, which raised
$6,222 for United Way of North Central Iowa. MOM Brands’ Tremonton, UT
plant hosted a sale Oct. 6, raising $17,700, and the company’s Asheboro
plant raised $10,000 at its Sept. 22 sale. In all, the company expects
to donate $84,000 to United Way affiliates across the country.

“We look forward to this sale every year, as it is an opportunity to get
out into the community and champion a great organization that makes a
significant difference in people’s lives every day of the year,” said
Linda Fisher, MOM Brands’ director of corporate communications. “We’d
like to thank everyone, in all the communities where we’ve sponsored Cereal
Day for United Way events, for their enthusiastic support.”
