Albertsons and Kellogg are doing their part to support children in their communities. The pair are teaming up for the third year to tackle the ongoing issue of childhood hunger in the communities they serve.

As part of Kellogg's Better Days Promise environmental, social and governance strategy, the company has donated $100,000 to the effort. Long-time partner, No Kid Hungry, will receive $50,000, which can help provide 500,000 meals through donations that help support programs that provide meals to kids. Another $25,000 will be donated to Albertsons Co.'s Foundation's Nourishing Neighbors in the three communities where the retailer is able to drive the greatest awareness of food insecurity in store. The remaining $25,000 will be donated to Albertsons Foundation's new E.A.T. program supporting food security among children.

"At Albertsons Cos., we believe every child deserves a healthy breakfast every day," said Christy Duncan Anderson, president and executive director of Albertsons 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 the generosity of customers and partners like Kellogg Company."

"With 9 million children in America not knowing where their next meal will come from, the need to help feed and fulfill continues," said Michael Ross, customer team lead at Kellogg. "Kellogg's Better Days Promise is committed to feeding people in need, and we're proud to partner with Albertsons Cos. for the third year to support children in our communities."
