Kellogg provides extra food and cash donations to help communities across Europe
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Kellogg and its charitable funds has donated more than €1,900,000 in food and €500,000 in cash to help those in need across the European region.
Working via our foodbank partners, Kellogg has distributed 20,000,000 servings of food to 8260 front-line charities and community projects in Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Russia, Spain and The UK between mid-March and the end of June 2020.
This supercharged effort, reflecting the seriousness of the situation compares to 27million servings donated in the whole of 2019)
These servings are estimated to have reached 1.3 million vulnerable people.
In addition to food, Kellogg has donated €500,000 in cash to help with increased costs due to the pandemic such as increased cleaning, PPE, staff and additional transport needs.
Bruce Learner, CSR Manager for Kellogg Europe commented, “This is a very difficult situation for so many people and inevitably, those impacted the most are those who are least able to cope. That’s why we are doing our part by providing much needed food and cash donations to food banks across Europe to support the vital work they are doing. Our goal is to get as much food as we can to the people who need it most.”
Kellogg has a long history of helping to deliver support to families and children in need through its Better Days purpose platform which was launched in 2013.
We have made a real effort to increase this kind of help during the recent pandemic. To date, Kellogg Company and its charitable funds have committed €17 million in cash and food to support COVID 19 global hunger relief efforts.
