According to the World Food Programme, the world produces enough food for everyone. Yet, one in nine1 people continue to struggle with hunger, and one in three suffer from malnutrition2. And in Canada, 1 in 3 children are at risk of not eating breakfast3 – a worldwide startling statistic that jumps to 1 in 2 children among indigenous communities. That’s why we’re working toward United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #2 – Zero Hunger, collaborating with others in Canada and around the world to “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture by the end of 2030.”
Until Zero Hunger is realized, Kellogg is leading in myriad ways. We continue to provide nutritious foods that nourish people in need and promote sustainable agriculture by nurturing our planet. We’re also doing our part to help feed people in need at home and around the world.
Feeding people in need has long been a cornerstone of Kellogg Company’s corporate responsibility initiatives. Today, doing so is central to our ambitious Kellogg’s* Better Days commitment to create Better Days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030. As part of this global goal, we intend to feed 375 million people in need through food donations, expanded child feeding programs and disaster relief.
Since 2015, Kellogg has donated 2.4 billion servings of food to people facing hunger and reached 3.2 million children through feeding programs.
Kellogg is partnering with food banks on six continents, sponsoring food drives to help stock community food pantries around the world and providing essential food to those coping with natural disasters. We also support Breakfast Clubs in 21 countries and are working to expand school and summer feeding programs so children can everywhere reach their full potential.
In Canada specifically, through our longstanding partnership with Breakfast Club of Canada, we have helped feed over 243,000 kids in 1,802 breakfast clubs from coast to coast each year. And our 13+ year partnership with Food Banks Canada also continues to make a difference. As a recent Food Banks Canada Donor of the Year and Award of Excellence recipient, we’re continuing to lead the fight against hunger with our support of local hunger relief initiatives, as well as corporate in-kind and financial donations and through employee volunteerism.
Details of how we’re Feeding People in Need are included on Kellogg Company’s Corporate Responsibility website.
