PDL is proud to support the Cayman community, and we recognize the importance of eating a healthy breakfast every morning. Sadly, many children in the Caribbean go to school without receiving this essential first meal of the day. To help make a difference, PDL launched the annual Give-a-Kid-Breakfast campaign in September 2016 in association with Quaker Oats and Tropicana.
Each year during September (back-to-school), Foster’s supermarkets host the 3-week Give-a-Kid-Breakfast campaign. To enter, shoppers must purchase any two Quaker Oats or Tropicana products, which enters them into the draw to win an Apple MacBook for themselves. The winner also gets to pick an entire school to win a free breakfast and $1,500 towards school equipment.
Once the winning school is chosen, it’s a major highlight for our team to head out to the school for the morning and hand out nutritious Quaker Oats, Quaker chewy granola bars, and vitamin-C packed Tropicana orange juices to each child. A monetary prize to the value of $1,500 is also awarded to the faculty, which will go towards new school or sports equipment.
Over the years, the initiative has gathered great momentum, which PDL will continue to build upon to create more awareness that some children still attend school without receiving their most important meal of the day.
