Kelloggs heart & soul efforts detailed in latest Corporate Responsibility Report

As a cereal scientist, these are the kinds of things I study. My job is to help find the best grains – responsibly sourced and sustainably grown – for use in our foods. Because so much care goes into growing our ingredients and nurturing them from farm to table, the last thing we want is for those efforts to go to waste.

Since its inception in 2013, this hunger relief program has provided more than 1.4 billion of servings – more than half of which were breakfast – to families in need around the world.

But our commitment to hunger relief goes beyond food donations and breakfast clubs. We also start at the beginning – the farm. We provide financial support to programs that help farmers reduce their post-harvest losses. These programs help protect their grains so they are the highest quality. With our help, farmers around the world are learning to prevent the loss of grains to pests, insufficient drying techniques, poor harvest practices, poor storage, or other external factors.

Food waste has significant social and environmental impacts. It contributes to global food insecurity, climate change and increased usage of natural resources. It also impacts the bottom line for farmers and vulnerable growers who can’t afford to lose their incomes.
