HARRISBURG, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but nearly one in five kids starts their day without it each morning. TownePlace Suites Harrisburg Hershey is teaming up with Kellogg's to help feed hungry kids with the Kellogg's Share Breakfast™ program.

Guests at this hotel near Gettysburg can contribute to Kellogg's goal of sharing one million breakfasts with kids in need with something as simple as a signature.

This Harrisburg hotel, along with the entire TownePlace Suites brand, is aiming to collect 15,000 signatures from guests, staff and members of the community. And for those who share Kellogg's mission through social media, the company will donate money to Action for Healthy Kids to help increase participation in the national School Breakfast Program.

Suites are 25% larger than average, offering plenty of space for working and living.
