Encouraging volunteerism

Giving back to others is a long-held belief at Kellogg Company. We’re proud to be part of communities around the world and even more proud of all our employees do to help the people in these communities thrive.

To say that Kellogg has established a volunteer culture is an understatement. Since 2015, our employees have volunteered more than 106,000 hours to support people around the world. Their generosity is helping us achieve our ambitious Kellogg’s Better Days Promise to create better days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030.

To help employees get involved, some of our regions give them time away from work each year to volunteer. It’s also not unusual for Kellogg teams to volunteer together. Our senior leaders also demonstrate our company’s commitment to volunteering by doing so regularly. Through our Volunteer With Me program, leaders encourage employees to spend time volunteering with them in our communities. Doing so gives people the opportunity to work side-by-side with senior executives they might not otherwise have an opportunity to know, while together making a difference in our neighbors’ lives.

Members of our business employee resource groups (B/ERG) also support our communities through volunteerism. Together they prepare food packs for children and their families, volunteer at community events, work at school breakfast programs and other activities that create better days for others.

Volunteering on our annual day of service

Each year, our employees provide annual volunteer service in honor of World Food Day in October by volunteering at organizations in their communities. In 2021, Kellogg employees volunteered more than 1,300 hours in Canada, Mexico, Netherlands, the U.K., the U.S., and many other communities.

From our earliest days, Kellogg has been a purpose-driven organization. Our employees simply feel good about our company, their colleagues, our leaders and themselves when they work together to help others.
