Kellogg Company Collaborates With Partners to Fight Summer Hunger
July 24, 2019
Nearly all (six out of seven) U.S. children who eat a free or reduced-price lunch at school don't have access to the same nutritious meals during the summer and even fewer have access to breakfast1. To fight summer hunger, Kellogg and its charitable funds are partnering with United Way Worldwide, No Kid Hungry and the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), supporting programs that increase access to food for kids in need when school is out. These summer-meal sites are a lifeline for low-income families who otherwise spend an extra $316 per month on food during the summer.2
- Kellogg is partnering with United Way to help provide free summer breakfasts and lunches in Battle Creek, Dallas, Des Moines, Detroit, Sacramento, Seattle and Jackson, TN.
- Kellogg is also a proud sponsor of No Kid Hungry's Share Summer Tour that allows people to text 'FOOD' to 877-877 to find free summer-meals sites in their neighborhoods. People can also contact 211, a service supported by United Way, by dialing 211 or visiting www.211.org to access essential health and human services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
