BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kellogg Company and Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States, have teamed up again this year to tackle the ongoing issue of childhood hunger in the communities they serve.
Kellogg has donated $120,000 to the effort - $75,000 of which will support Nourishing Neighbors, a charitable program of the Albertsons Companies Foundation. The remaining $45,000 has been donated Kellogg's long-time partner, No Kid Hungry.
This is the second year in a row that Kellogg and Albertsons Companies have joined forces to fight hunger.
"At Albertsons Companies, we believe every child deserves a healthy breakfast every day," said Christy Duncan Anderson, President and Executive Director, Albertsons Companies Foundation. "We're proud to be one of the largest contributors to food banks and hunger-relief programs in the neighborhoods we serve, and we're able to do this because of our generous customers like Kellogg Company."
