From community outreach days to disaster relief aid and supporting food security in our neighborhoods, we pride ourselves on enabling thriving communities.
How is Nestlé tackling hunger in American communities?
We're a food and beverage company - our products can be found in 97% of American households - so we know that we have a responsibility to help tackle hunger, a real problem facing one in eight Americans. As our CEO Steve Presley said recently, "part of our mission is to make affordable access to great-tasting, better-for-you food." While we can't solve hunger alone, we do believe that collective action can change lives.
In 2018 we worked with Feeding America on our National Day of Service - 5000 employees across the country went out into their communities to supply food banks, teach cooking classes, improve community gardens, and pack meals for kids.
In our home state of Virginia, we're supporting Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign, helping to provide breakfasts for children in a local elementary school.
