Food bank gets Olympic-sized donation from Phelps-free Kellogg

  • 0

SAN FRANCISCO - Kellogg Co. has recently donated thousands of boxes of cereal with Michael Phelps' picture on them to the San Francisco Food Bank.

Kellogg last month declined to renew it's endorsement deal with the Olympic swimming star after a photo surfaced showing him smoking from a marijuana pipe.

Food bank executive director Paul Ash says he doesn't know specifically why the cereal was donated. Kellogg officials responded to questions Wednesday with an e-mail saying the company routinely donates food that is nearing the end of its shelf life but still good.

Either way, Ash is glad to have the items, which he says can be hard to come by.
