A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the cereal will benefit the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation. The foundation, started by the Gronkowski family, is an organization dedicated to inspiring and supporting youths to reach their maximum potential by empowering them to be positively involved in sports, community activities, education, and fitness. The purpose of the foundation is to contribute financial resources to selected nonprofit organizations that effectively serve and benefit children with an emphasis on health, education and fitness.

So go out buy a few boxes of Gronk flakes at Stop & Shop for a tasty breakfast treat and to support A GREAT cause.

Gronkowski Tells The Crowd That Gronk Flakes Make You “Buff”.

I bought mine….not sure because I have a MASSIVE sweet tooth or that I want to be “BUFF” like Gronk!

One more thing….EPIC BOO to the reporter that asked Rob about the NFL referee debacle. Gronk answered like a champ, “Plenty of other players have already commented on that in the last 24 hours, so I don’t need to”.

Well done….well done.
