Please Join Us in the Fight against Hunger

Kellogg's Breakfasts for Better DaysOn World Food Day in October, Kellogg Company employees united for a global service project to collect nearly 130,000 pounds of food – 30,000 more than last year – from events held in 30 countries. Why? To help food banks and school breakfast programs around the world provide for those who rely on them, and because we believe in the power of breakfast and that no one should go without.

Through its Breakfasts for Better Days® program, Kellogg and Kellogg Company Fund have pledged to donate 1 billion servings of cereal and snacks, more than half of which are breakfast, by the end of 2016. The results from World Food Day contribute to this goal.

This holiday season, please consider making a donation (or an extra one) to your local hunger relief programs.

Get Cooking with Kids this Holiday Season

Cooking with kids makes happy memories, encourages them to try new foods and can even hone skills like reading and math. And, it’s a fun way for families to spend time together. Spread the good word to the parents and caregivers you reach.

Start with these kid-friendly recipes from our recipe database:

• Whip up wholesome Chunky Banana Muffins. Let little ones learn math by helping to measure the ingredients. They’ll also like slicing the banana with a round-point table knife and stirring and portioning out the batter.

• For classic fun, bake a batch of Christmas Star Treats™ for Santa. Ask kids to read the recipe with you and help organize the ingredients. They’ll enjoy using cookie cutters to make the stars and decorating the tops with a sprinkle of red and green candies.
