This month, Kraft employees will roll up their sleeves to work on 200 volunteer projects that support the company's community involvement priorities: fighting hunger and promoting healthy lifestyles.  Volunteer activities will include planting community gardens, sorting and packing donated items at food banks and leading activities that support nutrition, education and active play for children. 

"Make an Impact is our chance to be change makers in our hometowns," said Jim Norman, Vice President, Diversity & Community Involvement. "We're helping organizations that make our communities better for us all."

The Kraft team will volunteer with non-profit organizations in communities across North America, including Irvine, Calif.; Madison, Wis.; Avon, N.Y.; and Toronto. During National Volunteer Week ( April 21-27), the celebration will culminate with Kraft's Northshore Day of Service near its hometown headquarters. On April 26, Kraft employees will volunteer in Chicago-area neighborhoods like Waukegan, Little Village, Pilsen, and Englewood. 

Tune in to Kraft's company Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kraft for updates on the celebration throughout the month.
