UPDATE 3/18/20: The coronavirus situation has continued to escalate since our original post earlier this week. Given these unprecedented times, we believe it’s imperative to provide incremental support to our neighbors to ensure they continue to have access to the food they need.
To help even more families and children continue to get access to the food they need, we’re committing an additional $1 million from one of our charitable funds to support these efforts – in addition to the $600,000 previously announced.
The total $1.6 million will be provided to our Better Days partners, Global FoodBanking Network, Feeding America and the United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Region, who have established coronavirus relief funds to provide vital support to communities worldwide.
We will continue to actively evaluate where additional support is needed. This includes providing donations of food to our food bank partners as well.
Posted 3/17/2020: As the coronavirus situation continues to unfold, communities across the globe are considering or already under quarantines and some schools are closing, which is putting food insecure populations at greater risk.
How Kellogg is responding
As always, through our global Kellogg’s Better Days purpose platform, we help deliver critical nourishment to families when they need it most. In the face of this crisis, food banks are providing vital relief.
To help ensure families and children continue to get access to the food they need, Kellogg Company, through one of our charitable funds, is committing $500,000 to support coronavirus relief efforts. Funds will be provided to two of our Better Days partners, Global FoodBanking Network and Feeding America, who have established coronavirus relief funds to support communities worldwide including areas with school closures where kids rely on school meals.
Kellogg is also contributing incremental donations in communities around the world. For example, we are providing a $100,000 gift to United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Region’s emergency relief fund.
We will continue to actively evaluate where additional support is needed.
