WASHINGTON (WMAL) – Giant Food and Washington Capitals Captain Alex Ovechkin are partnering to release a limited-edition, honey nut cereal called Ovi O’s.

According to a press release from the Capitals, the cereal will be available for purchase across all 163 Giant Food stores in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware starting Sept. 17.

The cereal is described as a “sweetened, toasted oat cereal with honey and natural almond flavor.”

The release is for a limited time, while supplies last and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the cereal will go to the Maryland-based Children’s Cancer Foundation, Inc. a non-profit that has “awarded grants of over $38 million to area hospitals and researchers to treat and cure childhood cancers.”

The Ovi O’s cereal box will feature Ovechkin on the cover in his Washington Capitals gear and will sell for $2.69 for a 12.25 oz. box.

“I love cereal and it’s a huge honor to work with Giant to make Ovi O’s and help the Children’s Cancer Foundation support kids and families in the D.C. community,” Ovechkin said in a press release.
