Food Bank Partnerships / Food Drives

Partnering with food banks

Kellogg works closely with food banks on six continents in more than 26 countries to help feed people in need, including Food Banks Canada, which has more than 500 member food banks; the Mexican Foodbank Network of 50 food banks; European Food Banks Federation; and Feeding America with 200 member food banks.

As a founding partner of The Global FoodBanking Network, we have long understood the benefit of a strong food banking infrastructure to help address hunger around the world. We’ve helped establish several new food banks and launched a collaboration with the Food Bank Regional Network for Africa and the Middle East to help address food waste and support a school feeding program in Cairo, Egypt.

We also engage those who share our passion by sponsoring food drives. Food drives make it easy to donate food to organizations that support those facing hunger. For example:

  • United Way’s Summer Stock Up effort to stock food pantry shelves in the U.S.  at a time when donations typically drop, and the need is even greater with children home on school break.
  • The U.S. National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger food drive, the single largest food drive in the U.S., that encourages people to simply place food donations near their mailboxes for their letter carriers to collect and deliver to community food banks.

Each year, our employees honor World Food Day in October by advocating for food insecurity, including hosting food drives and meal-packing events. In 2021, employees volunteered more than 1,300 hours in their communities. Doing so is part of our Kellogg's Better Days Promise to create better days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030.
