Thank you to Kellogg for your commitment to ending hunger in Canada! As a key partner, Kellogg Canada’s longstanding support of Food Banks Canada includes sponsorship of Hunger Awareness Week, employee volunteer days at food banks, food drives, and corporate donations. Most recently, in recognition of World Food Day, Kellogg made a generous gift of $150,000 to Food Banks Canada, which we will invest in our programs that work to relieve hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow. In 2013, Kellogg launched Breakfasts for Better Days, and announced their goal to provide 1 billion servings of cereal and snacks, more than half of which are breakfast, to children and families around the world by the end of 2016. Through Breakfasts for Better Days, Kellogg has donated more than 10 million servings of breakfast in Canada alone. We are grateful to Kellogg for their generosity and commitment to relieving hunger in Canada!
