The Kraft Foods Group Foundation recently continued its commitment to help feed hungry people locally by donating $20,000 to The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri. The grant, part of the Kraft Feeding Possibilities program, will provide 111 students a Buddy Pack this upcoming school year.
“The Kraft Feeding Possibilities program is focused on food banks near Kraft facilities, to assist these agencies in capacity building and feeding programs for children and seniors,” said Matt Sims, Plant Manager of Kraft in Columbia.
“Investment in these special programs helps meet the needs of the food bank’s growing client base more efficiently. We’re so pleased that more children will be fed on weekends because of this gift.”
The Kraft Foods Group Foundation is a consistent donor to Feeding America, helping food banks across the nation. On a local level, the Kraft Columbia facility donates food as well.
“Kraft has been a faithful partner of The Food Bank for more than 15 years,” said Don Moore, The Food Bank’s Food Solicitor. “Kraft is the largest donor of protein, donating more than 221,911 pounds this year alone.”
“The Food Bank is very grateful for Kraft’s ongoing partnership and their passion for feeding hungry people,” said Lindsay Young Lopez, the Food Bank Executive Director.
