Partners in Food Solutions
Beyond traditional relief efforts and food donations.
There's more than one way to fight hunger.
So in 2008, General Mills founded Partners in Food Solutions.
It's a non-profit organization that brings together the business and technical expertise of global food companies to help local food processors in Africa.
It's a new way to fight hunger that helps African mills and food producers develop a sustainable food supply chain.
That's vital to feeding the continent’s growing population.
Since it's launch, the effort has gained:

THE IDEA for Partners in Food Solutions came to Ken Powell, chairman and CEO of General Mills, after he attended a forum on hunger.

Soon, more than 300 General Mills employees were volunteering to build the program.
