Bulls Announce Partnership with Kellogg in Support of Gleaners Food Bank

Press Release

BELLEVILLE, ONFirm believers that nobody should go hungry, the Belleville Bulls Hockey Club and Kellogg Canada have developed a newly formed partnership that aims to support Gleaners Food Bank Quinte this season.

On November 17, December 15, January 19 and February 16, Gleaners Food Bank will be on hand at the Yardmen Arena with food collection booths and barrels as Bulls game night staff and volunteers from Kellogg assist in the collection process. In addition, Kellogg will be making a donation to Gleaners Food Bank following the conclusion of the four game nights.

The Bulls and Kellogg will also be teaming up in the Santa Claus Parade on November 18. Traveling the parade route next to one another, Bulls players and staff will work alongside Kellogg volunteers in the food collection effort. Kellogg will also be distributing snacks to observers along the parade route.

“We’re really enthusiastic about our relationship with Kellogg,” said Bulls Marketing & Ticket Services Manager Scott Dickson. “To align ourselves with a company that puts their surrounding community first is an ideal that we ourselves want to exemplify in our interactions with the Belleville community and the surrounding Quinte region.”

“As a food company – and one with a longstanding heritage of giving back to the communities in which we operate – we understand the need to address the growing hunger problem in Canada,” said Lores Tomé, director, corporate affairs, Kellogg Canada Inc. “In keeping with our company’s legacy of community investment and involvement, we’re pleased to support Gleaners Food Bank in their efforts to fight hunger in Belleville and the Quinte Region this holiday season.”
