Kellogg Company has pledged more than €1.5 million in food and cash to help those in need across the European region.
Bruce Learner, Senior Manager Corporate Social Responsibility Europe, commented, “This is a very sad and difficult situation for so many people and inevitably in these troubling times 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.”
Working with its charity partners, the company will distribute more than 15 million servings of food to food banks and feeding programmes in France, UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland.
In addition to food, Kellogg Company and its charitable funds will be donating €500,000 in cash to help with the distribution of this food, and to support its food bank partners across Europe, to ensure that food is delivered to those who need it most.
Angela Frigo, Secretary General of the European Food Banks Federation commented “The European Food Banks are committed to play a key role in this crisis and the collaboration with Kellogg is a concrete gesture of closeness in period of social distancing. On behalf of our network of 421 Food Banks we are very grateful to Kellogg for their continued support to our activity in Europe and we are looking forward to working together more and more.”
