The report documents the company's continuing progress in four key areas: marketplace, environment, workplace and community. The Report also highlights the company's global charitable focus on hunger relief, which brings together all of these areas.

Breakfasts for Better Days: Hunger relief for children and families

Because one in eight people around the world faces food insecurity every day, and given the critical role that breakfast plays in providing a good start to the day, Kellogg and the Kellogg's Corporate Citizenship Fund, is helping address hunger globally through its new Breakfasts for Better Days™ initiative.

Through Breakfasts for Better Days™ the company has pledged to donate 1 billion servings of cereal and snacks, more than half of which are breakfast, to children and families in need around the world by the end of 2016.
