The Giving Spirit is Strong at Kellanova Canada

At Kellanova Canada, giving back and supporting our communities is woven into the fabric of what we do. It’s an integral part of our Better Days™ Promise to create better days for 4 billion people by the end of 2030. 

One way our giving spirit comes to life is by working toward a day when people in our communities are fed and fulfilled. Employee giving, donations and special volunteer activities are a few ways we’re moving closer to that goal.  

We’re proud of all our employees do to help the people in our communities thrive. The Kellanova Canada Volunteer Benefit Policy gives team members the opportunity to take up to two days of paid volunteer leave (during work hours) each calendar year to give back to the community—and they’re giving it their all! 

Highlights of a few recent activities follow: 

  • Some children experience hunger during the summer months when programs they rely on during the school year close for the Summer holiday. The Food Banks Canada After the Bell Summer Hunger initiative provides increased access to much-needed nutritious food. Kellogg Canada Kellanova’s predecessor, was a founding partner and Kellanova continues to provide support to the initiative. During a After the Bell Volunteer Packing Day, more than 50 employees helped pack 185,000 meal packs, including a donation of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Squares Bars, that were distributed to children and families in more than 200 communities throughout the Food Banks Canada member network across the country.  
  • The annual, purpose-led Day of Caring event brings together employees countrywide for an immersive day of team-building. For this year's Annual Day of Caring, during National Volunteer Week employees rolled-up their sleeves for a power hour of food sorting and a community appreciation breakfast at Daily Bread Food Bank, to show our gratitude for the volunteers. We also made a $50,000 financial donation to Daily Bread Food Bank at a time when the need has never been greater. 
  • In recognition of National Cereal Day, a donation of $100,000 to longstanding hunger partner, Breakfast Club of Canada with a specific focus to support northern and indigenous communities. Kellogg employees also volunteered to build Better Days Breakfast Bundles for donation to local community-based partners including Eden Food for Change and Burnhamthorpe Public School.
