Kellogg Company is donating more than 40 million servings of food to assist with relief in the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria .
The food is being sent to support Feeding America as it works to supply food banks in areas damaged by the storms. Approximately 122 trucks containing donations of Kellogg's® cereal, Pringles®, Kellogg's Nutri-Grain® bars, Cheez-It® crackers and Keebler® crackers and cookies are en route to victims and their families. The donations to food banks in Puerto Rico will ship as soon as logistical arrangements can be made.
"A tremendous crisis requires a tremendous response," said Kris Charles, Senior Vice President, Global Corporate Affairs. "We hope that our donations will help during this difficult time. There is a lot of work ahead for those affected by the hurricanes and Kellogg Company is committed to supporting Feeding America as it provides food to those in need."
The food donation is in addition to a monetary contribution by the Kellogg Company Fund of $100,000 Feeding America and $20,000 to the Banco de Alimentos de Puerto Rico - a member of the Feeding America network.
People who want to join Kellogg Company’s efforts to feed impacted families can donate to Feeding America.
