Summer hunger is not isolated to the U.S. Kellogg Canada also fought summer hunger by partnering with Food Banks Canada during its fourth annual After the Bell Summer Hunger initiative and volunteer packing day. More than 1,000 employee volunteers from Kellogg and other companies came together to pack 100,000 healthy food packs for local food banks to distribute to children across Canada in July and August when school is not in session. The food packs included Kellogg’s® cereals, Kashi® bars, shelf-stable milk, crackers, oatmeal, raisins, and fresh fruits and vegetables.
“Summer hunger is an upsetting issue. Most children look forward to summer vacation as a time of fun and rest, but for those living with food insecurity, it can be a time of worry,” said Chris Hatch CEO of Food Banks Canada. “After the Bell fills the gap during the summer months with healthy food packs for children dealing with hunger.”
Summer hunger is just one piece of a much larger puzzle. Around the world, more than 820 million people face a future of food insecurity3 brought on by our growing population, climate vulnerability and malnutrition. Kellogg has been actively working to help solve these challenges for more than a century. Through its Kellogg’s® Better Days global signature cause platform, the company is committed to creating Better Days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030 by addressing the interconnected issues of food security, climate resiliency and well-being for people, communities and the planet.
