Shauna Worthington, principal at Oquirrh Elementary in Riverton, collected 2,700 boxes of cereal, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Worthington’s project, with assistance from the Utah Food Bank, will enable low-income students from five elementary schools to have breakfast over the holidays, the newspaper reported.

Worthington held an assembly at her school Thursday to hand out the cereal, which was given to students in gift-wrapped boxes.

Worthington put together a team Wednesday night to wrap the boxes so they would be ready for Thursday’s assembly, KTVX reported.
