The Arlington County Democratic Committee is hoping to ramp up its efforts in support of the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC).

Democrats have committed to donating 350 boxes of cereal to the organization in 2014, but were running at just under one-third that total after five months of the year.

Not to worry, Democratic officials said.

“Given the usual slow start each year, and the brace of three elections this spring, the collection is actually doing quite well so far,” the organization said in its June newsletter.

Democrats also are accepting cash – $2.50 per box – to purchase cereal for AFAC.

Please, Democrats, no heavily-sugared cereals donated to families where obesity is already a problem.

Do you ever the ingredients listed on a box of 'healthy' cereal? Sugar and salt are near the top of the list.
