Post® partners with Feed the Children to fight summer hunger
This past year, the widespread effects of COVID-19 brought a new level of awareness to issues of hunger and food insecurity in the U.S. as more families found themselves struggling to put food on the table. In response, Post Consumer Brands is partnering with Feed the Children, a leading anti-hunger organization, and will match donations up to $25,000 from June through August.
This summer will be a difficult time for children and families across North America. Right now, parents are facing so many challenges while they try to get back on their feet—from paying overdue rent and other debts, to rising energy costs, to uncertainties around employment. Because of this, many may be facing food insecurity.
At Post Consumer Brands, we take pride in the communities where we live and work, and we support them by giving back through food and philanthropic donations and volunteering. Making sure everyone has enough to eat is foundational to our mission to Make Better Happen.
To help these children and families during this crucial time, we must let the experience of the ongoing pandemic drive us to better care for our neighbors. Whatever our “new normal” looks like in the future, widespread hunger should not be a part of it.
About Feed the Children
At Feed the Children, we feed hungry kids. We envision a world where no child goes to bed hungry. In the U.S. and internationally, we are dedicated to helping families and communities achieve stable lives and to reducing the need for help tomorrow, while providing food and resources to help them today. We distribute product donations from corporate donors to local community partners, we provide support for teachers and students, and we mobilize resources quickly to aid recovery efforts when natural disasters strike. Internationally, we manage child-focused community development programs in 9 countries. We welcome partnerships because we know our work would not be possible without collaborative relationships.
