As Kellogg’s celebrates 75 years since its first UK factory opened in Manchester, its UK Managing Director, Jonathan Myers has announced that Kellogg’s will be donating 75,000 breakfasts to food banks across Greater Manchester.

Kellogg’s will also be supporting 1,000 breakfast clubs in schools by donating 15 million free portions of cereal snacks over the next three years.

We’ve worked in partnership with Kellogg’s since 2005 providing both strategic and administrative support on their charitable giving projects to ensure its CSR outcomes and targets are measurable and impactful.

The projects include:

  • The Kellogg’s Active Fund (2005-2009) – small grants to community groups across the UK
  • The Kellogg’s Employee Match Fund (2006 to present) – Kellogg’s staff fundraising is matched by Kellogg’s
  • The Kellogg’s CCF Programme (2008 to present) – groups across Europe
  • Give a Child a Breakfast (2011 to present) – breakfast clubs in schools across the UK.

With our combined ethos of supporting our fantastic local communities, Forever Manchester and Kellogg’s are both encouraging businesses and individuals to get involved. Myers says, “As businesses I believe we need to drive growth to underpin the future of Greater Manchester – both its economy and its community.”

Kellogg’s and the MEN are hosting an event “Tackling the Growing Problem of Food Poverty in Greater Manchester: How Industry Can Help” on Friday June 21st.
