Kellogg global COVID-19 hunger relief donation now at $18 million
As the number of people impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to grow worldwide, the economic fallout of the pandemic threatens to create a new era of poverty. New research predicts that the number of people facing food insecurity could more than double in the coming months, putting more than half a billion people at risk globally.1
As always, through our global Kellogg’s® Better Days purpose platform, we help deliver critical nourishment to people when they need it most.
To date, Kellogg and its charitable funds have now donated $18 million to global COVID-19 hunger relief efforts. Our employees, consumers and customers are generously helping as well. We want to share the following message we received from one of our charity partners:
“Despite the incredible obstacles that life is sending to all of us, it is extremely touching to see how humanity is capable of the best during this crisis.”
You can learn more about our global COVID-19 hunger relief efforts in this latest Social K corporate blog.
