Donation Supports February “Feed the Love” hunger relief campaign
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Feb. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Kellogg Company and Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States, have joined forces to tackle the ongoing issue of hunger in the communities they serve.
Kellogg has donated $75,000 to Albertson’s Nourishing Neighbors, a charitable program of the Albertsons Companies Foundation. The donation is part of Albertsons’ “Feed the Love” in-store promotional campaign during the month of February and will provide approximately 300,000 meals to those in need.
“Kellogg shares Albertsons commitment to feed and fulfill those in need. We are proud to stand alongside Albertsons for the second year in a partnership that is focused on our aligned values and creating impact in our communities,” said Michael Ross, Customer Team Lead, Kellogg Company.
Feeding America states that more than 38 million people, including 12 million children, in the United State are food insecure.
“We’re proud to be one of the largest contributors to food banks and hunger-relief programs in the neighborhoods we serve, and we’re able to do this because of our generous customers like Kellogg Company,” said Christy Duncan Anderson, President and Executive Director, Albertsons Companies Foundation. “Both companies believe everyone should have access to healthy food every day – particularly children.”
Kellogg’s donation is part of its Better Days ESG strategy, which aims to create better days for 3 billion people by 2030 through feeding and other wellbeing programs. Since 2015, Kellogg has fed nearly 200 million people facing hunger and reached 3.7 million children through feeding programs.
