Kellogg helped provide 4.4 million U.S. school breakfasts

If a typical U.S. classroom has about 25 students, there may be an entire row of five children who may not have had breakfast.[1]

That’s five kids starting their day without the energy and focus they need to grow and learn.

Given the critical role breakfast plays in providing a good start to the day, clearly help is needed. That’s why Kellogg launched Breakfasts for Better Days™, a global philanthropic initiative that builds on the company’s longstanding leadership and commitment to hunger relief.

Kellogg set a goal to provide 1 billion servings of cereal and snacks – more than half of which are breakfast – to people in need around the world by the end of 2016. The infographic to the right showcases the company’s efforts in the U.S. to support the global goal.

For example, through a partnership with Feeding America, 171 member food banks in 48 states received Kellogg food donations in 2014. Kellogg also helped, through its charitable partnerships, provide 4.4 million school breakfasts last year.
