EL PASO, Texas – Tony The Tiger teamed up with Sun Bowl Association outgoing board president Stuart Sliva, incoming president Natalia Flores and Executive Director Bernie Olivas to help distribute boxes of cereal at the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Center on Thursday, April 30 in El Paso, Texas.
Kellogg’s, who sponsors the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl, donated 25,000 pounds (44 pallets) of cereal to be distributed to those in need. According to the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger organization, approximately 2,000 vehicles drive through each day to pick up food since the COVID-pandemic started.
Sun Bowl Association 2019-20 president Stuart Sliva said, “What a great-humbling day to finish off my year with the Sun Bowl.”
Tony the Tiger was out in the warm weather from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. bringing cheer to, not only those picking up food, but also to those distributing it.
“In all the years of being with the Sun Bowl Association, this has to be one of the most humbling,” Executive Director Bernie Olivas said. “El Paso is everything to me so it is an honor to be out here helping out.”
A photo album of Tony The Tiger distributing food will be available on the Sun Bowl Association Facebook (
