One of the ways we fight hunger is through Partners in Food Solutions.
More than 300 General Mills employees volunteered to build the program.
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.
Here's a 2017 update on the effort.
Millions in support
General Mills donated nearly $57 million in food to support U.S. and international food banks last fiscal year.
In 2016, General Mills provided food donations, in addition to General Mills Foundation grants, to help the Global FoodBanking Network create and strengthen food banks around the world. The network served 6.8 million people in 2016.
Our partnership with Feeding America began in 1977. It features:
- Food donations.
- Cause marketing programs.
- Service to local volunteerism.
- Foundation grants.
In fiscal 2016, General Mills donated more than 41 million meals to Feeding America’s 200 food banks across the United States.
